Those who earn a master’s degree demonstrate a significant level of academic achievement. After the completion of undergraduate studies, interested persons can apply for a master’s program. Once the applicant is accepted into a university program, the student earns a degree by successfully completing two years of advanced coursework.

Chances are, you’ve landed on this page because you want to know, what is a Master in Particle Physics? Such a program focuses on the exploration of the constituents of matter. By means of study and experimentation, the student gains an understanding of the theories and models of what makes up our universe. All students should expect to strengthen their skills in mathematics, problem solving and information technology.

Completion of a master’s degree in particle physics signals to research universities that you’re ready to lead cutting-edge research efforts. Those who seek employment increase their chance of being hired by energy and environmental organizations. In any case, graduates should expect to attain a full understanding of the universe and some of its governing forces, such as gravity.

Costs vary by location and institution. Tuition rates are generally guaranteed for one academic year. Some students choose to study part-time to work their way through the program at a moderate pace.

A fair number of graduates enter doctoral programs; however, the education also provides a solid foundation for teaching physical science courses in high schools and community colleges. Some find employment in government and scientific facilities. Those looking for more flexibility can work as science writers and reporters. For some students, their educational journey sparks ideas that lead them to pursue entrepreneurship.

A variety of international universities offer master’s level studies in particle physics. Application requirements vary between institutions. To get started with a course, search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.

Particle physics addresses the fundamental principles governing our world: forces and constituents. Today, our understanding is described by the Standard Model theory, which has exceptional predictive power but is incomplete. We explore the predictions of the Standard Model and seek a more complete understanding. These experiments are mainly done at the LHC collider at CERN where we are involved in the ATLAS and ALICE experiments. ATLAS searches for new physics, whereas ALICE studies the quark-gluon plasma. As a Master’s student in particle physics, you will take an active part in analysing the data recorded by the experiments. -

What are the attractions in dealing drugs, being a graffiti writer, or trying to rehabilitate criminals? Cultural criminology is about local cultures, subcultures and a whole range of cultural characteristics associated with crime. It aims to explain and understand how people involved in crime go about their everyday life and how they interact with others. We want to get inside the experiences of committing or controlling crime. If you are a graffiti writer, what are the thrills? What efforts are used in trying to control graffiti, and what is the cultural understanding among media and social control agents? -
