About

The physics curriculum provides classroom and research experience that prepares a graduate student for a career of either research and teaching at a university, or research and development at an industrial or government laboratory. The courses are well suited to graduate students in astronomy, astrophysics, chemistry, mathematics, geosciences or engineering, as well as those seeking a graduate degree in physics.

The faculty members of the department carry out theoretical and experimental research in the following areas: atomic/molecular, high-energy, low-temperature/condensed matter, materials, computational physics, nuclear physics, astronomy, cosmology and quantum optics. Research laboratories supporting the experimental programs are well-equipped with modern research apparatus. Special support facilities include an astronomical instrumentation laboratory, access to high-performance computing, a variable-energy cyclotron, as well as many other shared campus facilities.

English Language Requirements

You only need to take one of these language tests:

  • Minimum required score:

    6

    The IELTS – or the International English Language Test System – tests your English-language abilities (writing, listening, speaking, and reading) on a scale of 1.00–9.00. The minimum IELTS score requirement refers to which Overall Band Score you received, which is your combined average score. Read more about IELTS.

  • Minimum required score:

    550

    The TOEFL – or Test OF English as a Foreign Language – offers a paper-based test (PBT). The final, overall PBT score ranges between 310 and 677, and is based on an average taken from the three test components (listening, structure, and reading). The writing part of this test is scored separately on a scale of 0-6. Read more about TOEFL (PBT).

  • Minimum required score:

    80

    The TOEFL – or Test Of English as a Foreign Language – offers an internet-based test (iBT). The final, overall iBT score ranges between 0 and 120, and includes a scaled average from the four components (reading, listening, speaking, and writing). Read more about TOEFL (iBT).

Academic Requirements

  • On-line Application. A completed Apply Texas Application.
  • Application Fee. A nonrefundable $90 application fee. The application fee may be paid by check, money order or approved credit card. If you wish to submit your application fee by check or money order please use the alternate payment form.
  • Official Transcripts and Records. Official transcripts are required from each post-secondary university or college attended. An official statement of the award of the degree or diploma is required for each degree completed. College work from one institution posted on the transcript of another institution will not be accepted.
  • Official Test Scores. Required test scores (GRE or GMAT) should be sent directly from the Educational Testing Service to Texas A&M University and be taken within five years.
