Master of Science in Physics: Information and Requirements

The program „Master of Science in Physics“ has a duration of 4 semesters and comprises 120 credit points and deals with a specialization into a modern research topic.

In the first two semesters, an advanced lab course, advanced theoretical physics or computational physics will be taught. Further, the student selects a special subject. In addition to lectures the special subject includes a lab course in the work group and a seminar. Also, a no-physics course in mathematics, chemistry or business administration is to be chosen.

The master thesis will be written in a work group envolved in the special subject. The master thesis will take two semesters including planning, preparation and execution. After finishing, the master thesis will presented in a colloquium. The master thesis can be prepared in the groups of the Institute of Physics at the University Greifswald as well as at the Max-Planck-Institut for Plasma Physics, Greifswald branch, or at the Leibniz Institute for Plasma Science and Technology.
Special subjects are:
• Plasma Physics
• Soft Matter, Bio- and Environmental Physics
• Solid State and Atomic Physics
