Hi everyone, a quick question, what is the difference between M.Sc and M.A in physics?

Usually just the name.

But, you shouldn't just compare the name. It's important to look at what the degree entails: is it all coursework? half coursework and half research? all research? 1 year? 2 years? etc. Many Masters degrees can be quite different even though they might all grant a MS in Physics. It also depends on what country you are talking about (my answer here is North America based).
