Description: 

MSc in Physics, specialisation: Theoretical Physics

The main aim of the Theoretical Physics specialization is to provide comprehensive knowledge about theoretical physics and to prepare the student to carry out further study or research in this field. Additionally, students taught in English will gain knowledge of English physics terminology and skills in using this language. The practical use of English will be particularly pronounced during classes and seminars. Preparation and defense of the master’s thesis in English will be a practical verification of the acquired language skills.

Graduate skills

Students of the specialization Theoretical Physics will graduate with a Master's degree in physics. They will have a broad and comprehensive knowledge of theoretical physics, proficiency in using highly sophisticated mathematical and computer methods, including numerical simulations. The students will be able to prepare a master's thesis on classical subjects, like condensed matter theory, field theory, particle physics, astrophysics or in more contemporary areas like nanophysics and quantum information. Another advantage of graduates will be their advanced knowledge of English, which will facilitate reading specialist literature, writing scientific articles and preparing conference talks. It will increase a student's chances to continue study at foreign universities or to have a career in areas not connected to physics.

Career opportunities:

The graduates will be prepared to creatively solve problems, which will constitute the basis for further Ph.D. studies in theoretical physics. They will also have an enhanced ability to start a career in research institutes, in industry, in computer businesses or in education. The physical knowledge and abilities acquired during the study will be useful in related areas, like biophysics, nanotechnology or material engineering. On the other hand, the mathematical methods and computer approaches could even be used in distant fields like banking, insurance, management or sociology.
