The Master’s degree course in Physics is a two-year full-time programme taught in English and is designed to train and develop the careers of the next generation of physicists.

Courses are tailored to cover all aspects of Modern Physics from the very basics to the current frontiers of knowledge. More specifically, the Master’s degree course in Physics aims at providing students with both a foundation in Modern Physics and more advanced specializations in Physics, as well as fostering students’ knowledge and understanding of one of the internationally leading research topics in Physics as shown by the significant contribution of their thesis work.

The variety of the research areas is reflected by a course structure with various study plans suggested by the research areas active in the department:

  • Astroparticle and Particle Physics
  • Atmospheric and Climate Physics
  • Biophysics
  • Experimental Gravitation and Cosmology
  • Medical Physics
  • Nanophotonics
  • Nonlinear Systems and Electronics
  • Physical Science Communication and Teaching Methods
  • Quantum Gases and Ultracold Atoms
  • Quantum Physics of Matter: Materials, Energy and Environment
  • Theoretical and Computational Physics.

In order to achieve these goals, the Master of Science in Physics devotes approximately:

  • one third of its ECTS to the core lectures modules in modern Physics
  • one third to more specialized lecture modules in one of the research areas that are actively pursued in the Department of Physics
  • one third to the master thesis, which is coordinated within a research group under the guidance of a supervisor.
