Not going to find many in the US, hardly anyone applies for a terminal masters degree.

Whats the best, anyway? Do you have some magical meter stick in which to quantitatively measure the programs? The best program is the one were you get accepted, and has interesting work to do!

What is a terminal master degree? I assume it's not a good thing haha, just curious and don't know much about the US system.

It's just here, to do a phd in applied maths or theoretical physics at cambridge its is very nearly a 100% prerequisite to have done their master course and the same goes for imperial college london too (while both say they do consider students without a postgraduate master for theoretical physics phds they also say that in practice only 1 person every few years gets an offer from them that haven't done a postgrad master)

In the US you apply to doctorate programs after you've completed your bachelors degree. UK/Europe is different.
