The Masters Programme in Theoretical Physics gives a solid foundation in theoretical physics, with the possibility to specialize in e.g. cosmology, string theory, general relativity, condensed matter physics and quantum information.
Aims and goals
The masters program in theoretical physics has two main goals: first to provide the student with a solid mastery of the basic techniques of modern physics, in particular in the areas of quantum field theory, statistical mechanics and advanced numerical methods. Secondly, to offer the opportunity to a specialized and in depth study of a subject in the front line of modern research in theoretical physics
Content and range
a. Courses. Mathematics, and to an increasing degree also numerical simulations and computer algebra, play an important role in theoretical physics. The masters students are given good possibilities to complement their education in theoretical physics with advanced courses in these areas. In addition, the students are offered a number of advanced courses in different areas of physics in order to further broaden their education. More detailed information about the courses in the program. ()
b. Thesis. The supervisors, and most of the lecturers, in the masters program are active researchers in different areas of modern theoretical physics such as cosmology, string theory, general relativity, condensed matter physics and quantum information. During the master thesis project, the student will be integrated in one of the research groups, and in that way get a first hand experience of professional theoretical research.
Exam and employment opportunities
Even though one of the main goals of the masters program is to prepare for graduate studies in theoretical physics, the program also opens for other career opportunities. The training in critical thinking and analysis of new complex phenomena, which is obtained during the program is very useful not only in other academic disciplines such as bioinformatics and applied mathematics, but also outside the academic world in areas such as finance, insurance and telecommunications.
