Creighton University's graduate program in Physics is designed to combine a solid foundation in physics with adaptability to a wide range of student interests and career objectives. The Physics Department maintains close association with the Departments of Atmospheric Sciences, Mathematics/Computer Science, Chemistry, Biology, and the Health Sciences, providing excellent opportunities for interdisciplinary study and research. The Department also participates with other colleges and universities in combined research efforts, including collaborative experiments at regional, national, and international facilities. Close interaction between students and faculty facilitates responsiveness to the needs of each student. The physics department at Creighton University now offers a 2 year(including summers) program leading to a M.S. in physics and teaching certification in the state of Nebraska. Physics is the most fundamental of natural sciences. It touches on important philosophical questions in its theories of relativity and quantum mechanics, and it uses mathematics, computers, and high technology intrumentation as tools for research. For students who complete a degree in physics, the rewards are a deep understanding of nature, unusual flexibility in the choice of a career, and exceptional strength and stability in the job market.
