MSc Physics

This programme includes one year of coursework and, subsequently, a one-year training phase directed towards performing independent research. It aims at advanced training in selected fields of physics and offers the opportunity for specialization. The Master’s degree qualifies graduates for a subsequent doctoral thesis. The subjects reflect the physics research pursued at FAU. Focus points are astrophysics  and astroparticle physics, optical sciences and solid-state physics on the experimental side, and computational and statistical physics, light-matter interaction, quantum gravity, and condensed matter physics on the theoretical side. Optionally,  special Master’s courses can be selected with a focus on Physics in Medicine.
