Texas Physics Consortium


Texas Physics Consortium (TPC) is a group of Physics Departments that pool faculty expertise and institutional resources to provide access to quality upper-level undergraduate and graduate physics courses.  The TPC use of pooled resources provides their students with the wide range of upper level physics courses usually available at only large institutions while maintaining the intimate student-faculty interaction of a small department. Using these resources, the full member institutions of the TPC jointly award a BS Physics Degree with graduates being summed to meet the state's program graduation threshold. As a single physics program, students will lose no credit if they have to switch between full member institutions during their academic career.
