This program aims to develop outstanding physicists who will actively pursue advanced research in physics as well as regularly publish research articles in established physics journals and mentor the next generation of physicists. Prospective students of the program should have an undergraduate degree in physics or equivalent and should have taken the necessary background courses in mathematics (e.g., differential equations, vector calculus, linear algebra, complex analysis, and special functions) and advanced physics (e.g., classical mechanics, electrodynamics, quantum mechanics, and statistical mechanics) associated to an undergraduate degree in physics. Prospective students with a Master's degree in physics can opt to have some of the advanced physics and elective courses they have taken be credited toward satisfying the requirements of the program. The program requires the submission and successful defense of a doctoral dissertation. In addition, the student is required to publish at least one research article in an ISI-listed journal.
