Brooklyn College Of The City University Of New York
Division of Graduate Studies
The study of physics provides a foundation in fundamental science and develops skill sets that are highly valued in virtually every profession. The M.A. in physics program prepares students for admission to doctoral programs in physics or closely related fields such as astronomy, biophysics, medical physics, materials science, and engineering. For students who do not intend to pursue a doctorate in physics, the program provides a strong background in problem-solving through the application of physics, mathematics, and quantitative reasoning that can be extremely useful in a variety of professions, including business, finance, law, and medicine, as well as applied physics. For all students, the program also affords an opportunity to gain research experience.
