Prepare for a Dynamic Career

Channel your love of physics and challenging course work into the Physics Scholars Plan at the University of Houston-Clear Lake. We’ve combined the Bachelor and Master of Science of Physics degrees into a single program designed to give top students the chance to thrive academically and get a jump start on their careers.

Enjoy a Demanding Course of Study

As a student in the Physics Scholars Plan, you will work on a graduate-level research project to give your studies a crucial focus. And after you successfully complete the Physics BS, you could earn a waiver from the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) requirement so you can start your Physics MS quickly. This accelerated degree plan is the perfect choice for any student looking to maximize their academic success and career potential, and with UHCL’s prominence in the Houston area, you’ll be able to pursue graduate work or an excellent job in the technology sector.
