Physics is constantly developing and it is the task of the theoretical physicist to use and to improve existing theories and models, find new ones to describe recently discovered phenomena, or shed new light on old problems. This MSc programme offers you advanced knowledge in theoretical physics in a strong research environment.
This two-year programme gives you advanced knowledge and broad qualifications in how to use the mathematical and statistical methods that are applicable within theoretical physics.
Thanks to the flexibility of the program and a combination of mandatory and optional courses, you can create your unique profile by combining courses of your interest. Our optional courses cover areas such as quantum field theory, cosmology, astroparticle physics, condensed matter and advanced statistical physics. The final component of your studies is a master thesis project where students get to apply their knowledge and plan, carry out and report a research project. This is often performed together with one of our theoretical physics research groups. We offer the possibility to carry out long projects, up to one year.
Knowledge and skills acquired in the programme find applications in many areas of industry and research.
We want our students to develop their ability to work independently as well as in groups which is why our teaching focusses on course projects. There is a good relation between students and teachers, and we provide strong academical support to the students by always having easily accessible teachers. In addition, the programme includes a unique mentor system, where PhD students act as a mentor for MSc students in practical matters as well as introduction to different research areas.
Before starting the Master’s programme you should have passed a course/courses covering the following areas of quantum mechanics:
As a physics student at Stockholm University you gain experience of working in a frontline research environment and an advanced understanding of theoretical physics through analysing, modelling and synthesising complex information. Our programme provides an excellent foundation for PhD studies and opens multiple career options outside of the academic field. The ability and training in critical evaluation and analysis of complex new phenomena, often using sophisticated mathematical methods, is useful in various disciplines, such as bio-informatics and applied mathematics.
