Physics Program

Program Overview/Mission

The Houston-Galveston area is a thriving center for many science-intensive industries, from aerospace to petrochemical. This results in a high demand for professionals with knowledge of physics. UHCL’s Physics Program offers a bachelor’s and master’s degree plan, both of which provide students with a deeper understanding of the essential science used in many of the engineering disciplines and the space industry. UHCL also offers an opportunity in collaboration with the doctoral program at the University of Houston. UH awards the Ph.D., and UHCL supports the effort with courses, research opportunities and joint appointments with faculty. The result is a unique program that allows students to complete a Ph.D. in physics in the Clear Lake area. If you plan to begin graduate level coursework soon, we encourage you to apply to both the UH and UHCL physics programs.
