Physics - Diploma

Program Overview 

The graduate diploma in physics is directed at providing the student with an advanced background in areas such as computational physics, mathematical modeling, laboratory techniques, instrumentation, experiment design, and research techniques. A total of 18 credit hours (6 courses) is required for the diploma.

The courses may be selected from the 500-level physics courses. No more than two 400-level courses, not previously taken, may be considered for credit. Successfully completed 500-level courses in the diploma program will fulfill master’s degree requirements should the student subsequently be admitted into the master’s degree program. The diploma program may be completed in one academic year, and no thesis or qualifying examination is required.
