History and Philosophy of Science (two-year programme)
History and Philosophy of Science (HPS) offers a unique opportunity to study the foundations, practices, and culture of the sciences and humanities. We combine historical and philosophical perspectives to study past and present science. We investigate the interplay of science with cultural, social, political and institutional factors. We also analyse the fundamental structure of theories such as general relativity, quantum mechanics, evolution, and genetics. Our topics range from natural science and mathematics to social science and the humanities. We aim to have a global perspective, but the emphasis is on Western science in the last five centuries.
Theoretical Physics (two-year programme)
The research Master’s degree programme in Theoretical Physics is your gateway to understanding the fascinating world of physics, ranging from the unimaginably small scales of elementary particles to the vast dimensions of our universe. Our highly rated research programme will equip you with the knowledge and skills to describe space-time and elementary particles as well as macroscopic and microscopic phenomena in quantum and soft matter.
Experimental Physics (two-year programme)
The field of experimental physics offers unique scientific and technological challenges. As a student in the Master’s degree programme in Experimental Physics you will learn about the fundamental scientific theories that describe the world around us. You will receive advanced training in the design and use of advanced instrumentation or computer simulations required to study those theories.
Climate physics (two-year programme)
Our Master’s programme in Climate Physics offers you a unique combination of theoretical courses and practical training in all aspects of the Earth’s climate. The two-years programme trains you to be a highly skilled researched by focusing on the fundamental physical processes that make up the Earth’s climate system You’ll study the physics, dynamics, and chemistry of the atmosphere, oceans, and cryosphere – as well as explore their interactions.
