Physics Masters in The US. Switching Streams.

  1. Feb 10, 2013 #1
    Hi. I'm a 3rd year student currently pursuing a dual degree ( M.Sc Biology and B.E Chemical Engineering ) from BITS pilani . I'm planning to enroll in a masters program in physics at a US university. As I understand it, this kind of thing ( switching streams to physics ) is not easy. Two things,
    1) Would it really be necessary to take advanced courses in physics, especially if I'm adequately prepared for the PGRE and do well in it? Does this depend on where you're applying ?
    2) I'm looking at summer research interns at the moment. Would interdisciplinary work ( with a heavy emphasis on physics ) be considered, even though it isn't purely physics research? Does this depend on where you're applying?
