Application to our undergraduate programs (BS Physics and BS Applied Physics) may be made through the Office of Admission (UPCAT). Choose the appropriate program.
- B.S. in Physics Program
The five-year program leading to the degree of Bachelor of Science in Physics aims to provide students with a comprehensive, thorough, and rigorous training in physics as a solid preparation for further advanced studies in physics at the graduate level, and a general education in the humanities, social sciences, and other natural sciences that will enable them to become broadly educated and socially conscious physicists.
In their fifth year, students are required to submit a thesis in order to expose them to actual physics research. This program is specifically designed for students who intend to pursue professional research and/or teaching careers in physics.
BS Physics Course Curriculum
- B.S. in Applied Physics Program
The five-year program leading to the degree of Bachelor of Science in Applied Physics has two areas of concetration — Instrumentation and Materials Science. This aims to provide the students with a broad and adequate training in physics as a foundation for careers in applied or interdisciplinary sciences like electronics, computing, biophysics, superconductivity, thin film processes, liquid crystals, geophyiscs, and physics chemistry. In their fifth year, students are also required to submit a thesis. General education in the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences for a broader educational base and social consciousness are likewise stressed and developed.

Application to our graduate programs (MS Physics and PhD Physics) may be made through the Graduate Office of the College (GO/CS).
- Ph.D. in Physics Program
The program leading to the degree of Doctor of Philosophy in Physics aims to provide the students with an advanced graduate training in physics that will fully prepare them for scientific careers as top level physicists in academic and/or research institutions. This program is specifically designed to enable students to gain a deep and thorough knowledge of at least one specialized area of physics, to obtain a broad knowledge of several other major areas of contemporary physics, and to acquire the competence to undertake original and independent research in experimental or theoretical physics.
Students in the straight Ph.D. program of the College of Science may earn a Master’s degree in their program provided they have completed the following:
(1) completed at least 33 units of graduate courses in their Program of Study;
(2) passed the Doctoral Qualifying Examination;
(3) passed the Doctoral Candidacy Examination;
(4) have a GWA of 1.75; and
(5) fulfilled all other College and University requirements for a Master’s degree. [Source: COLLEGE OF SCIENCE REVISED GUIDELINES FOR GRADUATE PROGRAMS. Approved by the College of Science Graduate Faculty Council, 11 August 2004.]
- M.S. in Physics Program
The program leading to the degree of Master of Science in Physics aims to provide students with an adequate graduate training in Physics that will prepare them for scientific careers as medium-level physicists in academic and/or research institutions. The M.S. degree may be obtained through the thesis option or the non-thesis option, which includes a written comprehensive examination.
MS Physics Course Curriculum
- M.A. in Physics Program
The two-year program leading to the degree of Master of Arts, Major in Physics, aims to upgrade the student’s competence in teaching college physics. This program is specifically designed for college physics teachers who do not possess a B.S. in Physics degree.
