The Department of Physics offers Accelerated Master’s Programs in partnership with other CSU departments. Students majoring in Physics, in the Applied Physics Concentration, can take up to nine credits of graduate coursework that applies towards both B.S and M.S. degrees. With normal progress and careful planning, students can complete both undergraduate and master’s degrees in 5 years. Currently, we have partnerships with the department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, leading to a M.S. in Electrical Engineering, and with the School of Advanced Materials Discovery, leading to a M.S. in Materials Science and Engineering. Other partnerships are planned.
