Learning outcomes

Physics is a well developed science with sound and sometimes complicated theories. After having graduated with a master's degree you will have gained knowledge regarding the essential elements in the most important theories of physics: quantum mechanics and quantum field theory, general relativity theory and statistical mechanics.

The master's programme in theoretical physics will give you an introduction to research with systematic use of theories and models in physics problems. You will learn about the connection between the theories and work on expanding them. Later you will also use them to carry out specific predictions of physical phenomena. Some calculations can be done analytically, while other problems require extensive use of programming and numerical methods.

Through the work with the master's thesis you will learn fundamental scientific working methods. Through the work on the master's thesis you will also learn fundamental scientific methods. You will learn to work independently with your own project, and you will get practice in making a clear, structured and lucid written presentation.
