Do you want to understand the inner workings of nature from a theoretical viewpoint? At the Department of Astronomy and Theoretical Physics together with the Department of Physics in Lund we offer a broad programme covering a wide range of topics in theoretical and mathematical physics
You can choose from studying the smallest constituents of matter and their interactions within theoretical high energy physics via nuclear and solid state physics within mathematical physics, all the way to protein folding and plant growth within biophysics and computational biology. In all cases you will get a solid basis of theoretical knowledge needed to develop new models and to better understand how nature works.
A Master of Science in Theoretical Physics will give you ample opportunities for pursuing a wide variety of careers depending on your specialisation. Whereas many students to on to do a PhD in theoretical physics and related subjects, it is also possible to find suitable careers outside of academia, for example in the fields of information and communication technology or energy production, where advanced programming and modelling skills are needed.
In addition, the upcoming MAX IV and ESS laboratories in Lund will also provide new opportunities for theoretical physics graduates.
