The Masterís Programme in Theoretical Physics at Stockholm University 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.

Description

Advertisement

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.

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.
