Welcome to the Faculty of Physics

Startbild Physik November 2013

Located in the centre of the historic and picturesque old town between the town hall and the castle, the physics department is steeped in tradition. The list of distinguished scientists who studied and/or taught physics in Marburg is long, among them Denis Papin, Alfred Wegener and Otto Hahn.

We take pride in the department’s history and are just as proud of the way tradition has paved the way for outstanding state of the art scientific research, with, e.g., semiconductor physics being internationally renowned for cutting edge research. Further major areas of research include – among others – physics of complex systems, astronomy, biophysics, and optics.

The department offers Bachelor’s and Master’s degree courses as well as secondary teacher training courses and with only 500 students, it is small but has a lot going for it, like e.g., excellent support and guidance for students. So, if you are looking for an institution with an outstanding reputation in teaching and research …

… studying physics in Marburg is a brilliant choice!

Prof. Dr. Reinhard Noack, Dean of the Faculty of Physics
