M.Sc. Physics - Specialization and Research

The Master's degree is the degree of a scientific physics education. The 4-semester course of study also grants lateral entrants, in addition to graduates of a 6-semester Bachelor program in physics, an opportunity to obtain a Master's degree in physics. Building on a 3-year natural sciences Bachelor program, students will have the opportunity to deepen their study of general physics in accordance with their level of knowledge. An extensively free elective range in physics allows for the acquiring of additional knowledge in a field of interest of choice, in which you may wish to complete your thesis.

In the profile study area, students can attend modules outside of the disciplinary culture of physics, on the one hand, and get to know the work groups in the department, on the other. This serves for profiling and orientation of students and helps in selecting the field of work in which the research block and the Master's thesis are to be performed.

The cooperation in current research fields of work groups is carried out in the research block. It comprises the work group internship, the research internship and the master's thesis. A central element of the master's program is the master's thesis, in which students acquire the capability for independent research by solving a current problem.

With corresponding demand, it is possible that the course offerings and program achievements can be carried out entirely in the English language.
