Physics from Louisiana State University has three phases and the goal is to develop a professional-level competence in creative research.


At Physics from Louisiana State University the emphasis is on coursework and the comprehensive Qualifying Examination. During this first phase, students are encouraged to participate in research, but are at the same time cautioned to observe the time limitations imposed by other requirements, including especially examination preparation.

The second phase contains advanced-level courses and an emphasis on beginning research under the direction of a major professor, chosen by mutual consent. Advancement from the first phase into the second is accomplished primarily by passing the Qualifying Examination.
