Advisement

The physics, astronomy, and materials science department is committed to seeing you succeed in your academic career. To ensure ample opportunity for us to guide your progress, plan a meeting with your adviser at least once a semester.

Undergraduate advising

To be assigned an adviser, contact the department of physics, astronomy, and materials science located in Kemper Hall 101. If you have forgotten who is assigned as your adviser, log in to My Missouri State and select the Student tab, then Student Profile link.

Once you have been assigned an adviser within the physics, astronomy, and materials science department, you can contact your adviser directly to schedule appointments for advising. If you have completed fewer than 60 hours, you are required to speak with and receive your adviser’s release to register for classes.

Graduate advising

You must receive adviser release prior to registering for each semester of graduate study. Graduate students are also required to submit an adviser-approved program of study to the Graduate College before 14 hours have been completed.

If you are pursuing a Master of Science in Materials Science, contact Dr. Robert Mayanovic.

If you are interested in the MAT or MS Ed. physics education graduate program, contact Dr. Evan Frodermann.

If you are interested in the natural science education graduate program, contact Dr. Tamera Jahnke.

If you are interested in the MNAS with an emphasis in physics, astronomy, and materials science, contact Dr. Tiglet Besara.
