Physics Scholars Plan-Linked B.S.-M.S.
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 B.S. and M.S. degrees into a single program designed to give top students the chance to thrive academically and get a jump start on their careers. It allows highly motivated and qualified students to complete both the B.S. and M.S. degrees in physics in a time-and cost-efficient manner.
Enjoy a Demanding Course of Study
As a student in the Physics Scholars Plan, you can start your graduate coursework
before receiving your B.S. degree. You are expected to work on a graduate-level research
project to give your studies a crucial focus. And after you successfully complete
the Physics B.S., you could earn a waiver from the Graduate Record Examination (GRE)
requirement so you can start your Physics M.S. 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 and other relevant sectors.
