You do need to be careful. Pretty much every university that offers a Ph.D. in physics will offer a Masters in physics, but the vast majority will not admit students for a masters degree.

Something that would be useful is if you start with the AIP list of graduate schools and then pull out the schools that offer terminal masters in physics. If you find out, please post it since I'd be interested to see that list.

If you're looking for a terminal master's degree, you might consider a PSM in Physics. It combines graduate physics courses with some business management courses.

Here's the one at my school: http://grad.towson.edu/program/master/apph-ms/

It's 6 physics courses, 3 business (project management) courses, a research seminar, and then either a master's thesis or an internship.

Your question lacks a very important piece of information - where in the world are you looking at?.

This is an international forum with people from all over the world. If you are looking for masters program in, say, Australia, and we give you a list for the UK, that would be a total waste of time and effort, wouldn't it?

Thanks all for your kind replies. I'm currently in the United States and I'm trying to go to graduate school in US as well. The reason why I am asking if there is a list for the Graduate school that offers master's degree is because I want to get good grades and results during my Master's degree and go to an higher ranked school for my Ph.D. Thanks again for your advices and helps.

You need to know that in the US, in physics, one does not normally do the M.S. and Ph.D. separately. Students who intend to pursue a Ph.D., enter a Ph.D. program after finishing a bachelor's degree. During the course of the Ph.D. program, usually after finishing the required coursework, you can normally "pick up" a master's degree along the way.

Read ZapperZ's sticky at the top of the forum.

I think I've said that phrase on this forum more than anything else, now that I think of it...

You should, by the time you are about to get your undergraduate degree, be familiar with two important institutions - the American Physical Society (APS) (which you can be a member to with you are a member of the Society of Physics Students), and the American Institute of Physics (AIP), which publishes a bunch of statistics, including the http://www.aip.org/statistics/trends/reports/physrost.pdf" at every level.
