Course content

The Department of Physics offers two programs of graduate study leading either to the Master of Science or to the Master of Science in Teaching degree. The Master of Science degree program is a research-based master's program with a required thesis. It prepares graduates for employment in private or government laboratories, or for further graduate work. The department participates in PhD programs in Biomedical Sciences, Engineering, and Environmental Sciences.

Key facts

The Physics Department leads the college, the university, and the country in a variety of measures. For instance:

- Three graduate students have received national SMART fellowships from 2009-11 to pursue a Ph.D. degree, your four national fellows (an American Geophysical Union fellow, two American Physical Society fellows, an IEEE fellow) is unmatched at Wright State and, per faculty, is above some of the largest doctoral programs such as Kansas State University, the department has the only endowed chair position in the college.

- Our four female faculty, per faculty, is above the national average of women faculty in physics departments,the external research funding received by physics faculty over the 2006-11 is tops in the college, averaging over $2.5M a year/

- Over 25% of the faculty serve on editorial boards of international journals.

- The first ever International Conference on Zinc Oxide was organized at Wright State. Zinc oxide is the next generation optical material, with applications ranging from suncreams to DVD lasers
