Courses in LSA Applied Physics
Applied Physics is a graduate intercollegiate program with participating faculty in the College of Literature, Science, and the Arts, the College of Engineering, and the Medical School. It combines coursework in the fundamentals of physical theory, its applications to technology, and practical “hands-on” training in the research laboratories leading to the Ph.D. degree.
Applied Physics (APPPHYS)
