Physics, Master's Programme, 120 hec

The Master's Programme in Physics is intended for students with a keen interest in either the theoretical or experimental aspects of frontline physics and astronomy. It is possible to specialize in theoretical and/or experimental aspects of particle physics, subatomic physics or astrophysics.

Understanding the basic laws of physics has been a fascinating problem since the birth of modern science. It is of great intrinsic interest and also forms the basis of other branches of science. Trying to probe the smallest structures of matter and the largest structures of the Universe also drives the development of new technologies.

The skills in problem solving and advanced experimental techniques, as well as collaboration and presentation skills, acquired in this program are highly valued both in the academic world and on the job market. The interested student will also be well prepared to enter a doctoral programme at University of Gothenburg, Chalmers or at another university in both Sweden and worldwide.
