MPhys in Physics

The University of Warwick, Department of Physics
Campus Full time 4 years August 2019 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.... [-]

Master's Degree in Complex Systems Physics (MFS2)

Universidad de las Islas Baleares - UIB
Campus Full time 1 year September 2019 Spain Palma

Throughout the past century scientific research has been characterized by a progressive specialization and compartmentalization of knowledge, it being very difficult for a person to dominate more than one scientific field. Despite the success of this program based on a reductionist approach, the new scientific challenges require a broader vision and the establishment of synergies between research groups of different disciplines that allow to go beyond the traditional frontiers of knowledge. In particular, complex systems are characterized by the existence of emergent properties and collective behaviors generated by the interaction between a large number of elements. [+]
