Overview

Key Features

The Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Missouri-St. Louis offers programs of study leading to a Master of Science degree and a Ph.D. degree in physics. 

The Physics degree from University of Missouri–St. Louis is based on the premise that adaptation to the modern world will require a deeper fundamental understanding of experimental and theoretical physics as well as collaborations between researchers in physics and those in other disciplines. Faculty research programs include astrophysics theory and observation, biophysics, nonlinear dynamics, materials and surface physics, and statistical physics.

The degree programs are designed to prepare pre-career and mid-career students for advanced research and development or academic positions.
