The Physics programme at Stockholm University is a very good preparation for future PhD studies in experimental physics (at SU's Physics Department there are strong experimental research programmes in atomic, molecular, and cluster physics, quantum optics, superconductivity, and in nuclear and particle physics).



Physics is an empirical science, where ideas and theories on physical phenomena are examined through observations and controlled experiments. This master's program trains you in how to plan, execute and analyze advanced experiments. In physics, the art of identifying and building critical and more sensitive experiments, testing theories, and that allows for unexpected discoveries, as important as the development and refinement of theories. The Master's program is an excellent preparation for graduate studies in experimental physics. At Stockholm University conducted research in most branches of modern physics particle physics, nuclear physics, atomic and molecular physics, condensed matter physics, astrophysics and astroparticle physics and quantum optics, as well as in instrumentation and Applied Physics. The advanced training in project planning, instrumentation and measurements offered by the program is an excellent preparation for advanced development work in industry and work in the public sector.

A Master's degree in Physics makes you attractive on the international job market. Among the suitable areas within the industry include telecommunications, development and use of detectors and sensors, various applications of laser technology, instrumentation, medical, energy etc. Some areas suitable for postgraduate studies mentioned above, but also includes other areas in which sound knowledge of the theoretical and experimental physics and instrumentation required.
