The MSMP program offers tracks in both radiotherapy medical physics and diagnostic medical physics. Students may select either a thesis option or non-thesis option. Degree requirements for the non-thesis option include a minimum of 38 didactic credit hours and 6 credit hours of clinical practicum. Degree requirements for the thesis option include a minimum of 38 didactic credit hours and 6 independent study credit hours. The six independent study hours are required in order to successfully complete the MSMP thesis project. To maintain good academic standing, students, in the MS Program are expected to maintain a 3.0/4.0 GPA; students must have a cumulative 3.0/4.0 GPA at the time of graduation. Curricular examples of typical coursework for both tracks are listed below, including additional optional elective coursework (which add to 50 credit hours in this example).
