Wichita State reviving master’s degree in physics
Wichita Wichita State University is reviving its master's degree in physics.
The move announced Tuesday in a news release comes a month after the Kansas Board of Regents green-lighted the proposal. The regents suspended the program in 2003 because of low enrollment and graduation numbers for it.
The program is officially restarting the spring of 2016, but the school is now taking applications.
Ron Matson, the dean of the Fairmount College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, says the next step is to recruit students.
Wichita State has 40 undergraduate physics students, but that number is expected to increase now that undergraduates can be recruited to the master's program.
