Physics Ph.D. Collaborative UHCL/UH Program

The first program of its kind, the Collaborative UHCL/UH Physics Ph.D. program establishes a partnership between the master’s degree program at UHCL and the Ph.D. program at UH. Select faculty at UH and UHCL hold joint appointments which allow them to ensure the smooth transition of their students from the M.S. to the Ph.D. program. In addition, a Joint Committee helps advise students on their transition.

Degree Requirements

Additional Information

A candidate must earn a grade of B or better in the class and on the final exam. Students exploring this option must be accepted into the Graduate Physics program at UH for core courses to count toward candidacy. Therefore, interested students should apply for admissions to both the UHCL and UH physics programs before signing up for Ph.D. candidacy courses. Students accepted into the collaborative Ph.D. program will be subject to the same requirements as other Ph.D. candidates in the UH Physics program. They will complete their Ph.D. thesis under the advisement of a UH and UHCL faculty committee.
