- Department of Physics
We offer a program leading to a Master of Science in basic physics or applied physics as well as a Ph.D. in physics. We also offer a teaching emphasis for secondary education.
Well-qualified juniors or seniors planning on going to graduate school or first-year graduate students may consider applying for an NSF Graduate Fellowship or a National Physical Science Consortium Fellowship. The typical due date for these programs is November. Contact the assistant chair or director of graduate studies for more information.
There are also a number of NIU awards and scholarships. Our department offers several scholarships.
