Combined B.S./M.S. in Physics University of California, Santa Cruz

USA

Course info

Summary

The five-year combined B.S./M.S. in physics program provides undergraduate students the opportunity to earn a M.S. degree in five years. Students are able to start their graduate coursework in their Junior year and can use up to two elective requirements between degrees. This program is designed for students who intend to go into private industry upon graduation and is not well-suited for those that ultimately want a Ph.D. in Physics. The Combined BS/MS has two applications, one at the Departmental Level (due second quarter of Junior year) and then another at the Graduate Program level (due first quarter of Senior year). Upon successful completion of their undergraduate requirements students are awarded their B.S. in Physics and, assuming that they still meet the relevant criteria, may continue into the M.S. program. In order to be awarded the M.S. students finish any remaining M.S. coursework and then defend their M.S. Thesis.
