Physics

Physics is one of the most applicable sciences in existence and can lead to careers in technology, sports and games, space science, sound engineering in music and television, and a lot more. A Master in Physics is an excellent choice for students seeking exciting and promising careers in a variety of settings.

Although Physics is defined as the study of matter as well as energy and interaction between the two, physicists also answer large questions like: how did the world come to being? How is the universe changing as we speak? These are deep, philosophical questions which physicists attempt to answer through scientific knowledge. With a Master in Physics, students will explore these questions and more.

If you want to be a part of this groundbreaking science, then perhaps a Master in Physics is the path for you. On this site you will find an array of programs from many countries that offer Master in Physics degrees. Not only are these programs in just Physics, but also Electronics and Communications, Laser Science and Nanomaterial. So if you're interested in a Master in Physics, this is the place to be.

MPhys in Physics

The University of Warwick, Department of Physics
Campus Full time 4 years August 2018 United Kingdom Coventry

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. [+]

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.... [-]
