Graduate Studies

Christopher Newport offers excellent instruction and intellectually challenging research opportunities to not only undergraduate students, but also to students in our three graduate programs. We offer traditional master's programs, as well as bachelor's to master's programs in which Christopher Newport students can complete both their undergraduate degree and the master’s degree in five years.

Applied Physics and Computer Science

The MS in applied physics and computer science has an excellent record of research and publication in:

  • Nuclear physics
  • Dynamical systems
  • Artificial intelligence
  • Instrumentation
  • Advanced computer systems

Our faculty have strong connections to two nearby national laboratories: the NASA Langley Research Center and the Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility.

Environmental Science

The MS in environmental science enables students to work in the growing field of environmental monitoring and conservation. You will work with top research scientists in:

  • Wetland conservation
  • Applied conservation biology
  • Estuarine ecology
  • Environmental microbiology
  • Atmospheric chemistry

Teaching

The master of arts in teaching prepares you to become a highly qualified, licensed teacher. Students take courses that build on content knowledge and develop tools for effective instructional practice. Faculty in our teaching program come from departments across the University and the Newport News Public School System. They bring both excitement for teaching and practiced pedagogical instruction to the classroom.

In addition to the traditional master of arts in teaching degree, we offer an initial licensure-only program and a five-year program for CNU students interested in earning a bachelor’s and master’s degree with licensure.
