Natural Sciences

Natural Sciences refer to those sciences that use scientific methods to study nature and have a naturalistic approach to the study of the universe. This field of study is extremely developed and includes many branches, such as Physics, Astronomy, Earth Science, Agricultural Sciences, Chemistry, Biology, Oceanography, Geographic Sciences, Mathematics and Ecology, all of which are possible areas for study within a Master in Natural Sciences program. The disciplines provide a basis for applied sciences that bring theory to life and practical use. With a degree from a Master in Natural Sciences program, students can have a variety of career opportunities in educational institutions, research facilities, private companies, and public or non-profit organizations.

As the modern times require new inventions and cutting edge technologies, natural sciences develop further and start to explore the cross-discipline fields, where the distinctions between the various disciplines are not sharp. Chemical physics, Biochemistry, Geoinformatics and Nanoscience are good examples to demonstrate what interdisciplinary studies can result in. These are all areas that can be studied in Master in Natural Sciences programs.

If you are looking for a Master in Natural Sciences, this is the place to be. Have a look at the various programs below, offered by universities from around the world.

Physics aims to observe and explain the behaviour of the physical universe. In particular, physics looks for basic laws, which account for and predict what can be observed. Part of the appeal of the subject is that the physical world is governed by remarkably few such laws and that these apply everywhere and to everything.

The structure of the courses reflects the structure of the subject. All students take the core modules and choose further modules from the lists of options. The core modules introduce the fundamental principles, while the optional modules explore their applications in the different areas of physics including astrophysics, the properties of matter, particle physics and atmospheric physics. The option scheme also allows a proportion of modules to be taken from outside of physics. We encourage students not only to consider modules related to physics, for example in computing but also modules in philosophy and modern languages.... [-]
