Graduate Programs

The Department of Physics at the University of Vermont offers a Master's of Science degree in Physics. In addition, the department participates in the Materials Science program in which students can get either an M.S. or a Ph.D.

Almost all of the graduate students in physics are supported through Graduate Teaching Fellowships (GTF). This includes a stipend for nine months and a tuition scholarship covering up to 10 credits per semester. Beginning graduate students are assigned to teach laboratory classes in the introductory physics courses. In later years, these students may continue to teach laboratory classes or recitations, but often are increasingly supported through research grants as they focus on thesis research.
