As one of the American Physical Society’s (APS) Bridge Programs, we are eager to welcome strongly motivated students to our department, offering them the opportunity to earn a master’s degree as they prepare for the Ph.D.
The Bridge Program is designed to provide an individualized course of study, enabling students to bridge the gap between undergraduate and graduate degrees. Drawing from our broad curriculum, the Bridge Program features an especially wide array of laboratory-based courses. It emphasizes immersion in frontier research activities in both traditional and interdisciplinary fields of physics.
The varied Physics curriculum at Indiana University includes accelerator physics, astrophysics, biophysics, computational physics, condensed matter physics, elementary particle physics, gravitational physics, neutrino physics, nuclear physics, and quantum information.
Our department is interactive, friendly, and personal. From the time students enter the Bridge Program, we pay close attention to mentoring, advising, and professional development. We anticipate that in many cases Bridge Fellows will be able to transition seamlessly into our Ph.D. program.
