None of the really good schools offer an MS in physics (as an objective for an incoming grad student). They offer only the PhD as an objective. But some students take the MS along the way, or on the way out of the department. But there are some schools that offer an MS only program. Sometimes these programs are offered for students who have full time jobs. They're usually not supported by the department and are more expensive.
