Master in Theoretical and Mathematical Physics
Language of instruction: Russian
The Department of Theoretical Physics was set up in 2009 by the decision of the Academic Council in order to train professionals in modern theoretical physics. It is one of the most important departments of the St Petersburg Academic University that provides up-to-date training in theoretical and mathematical physics.
The faculty is formed from highly skilled physicists-theorists who are well-known in the scientific world. Professors of the department work in leading research centers (Ioffe Physical-Technical Institute, St Petersburg Academic University etc.) and leading universities (St Petersburg State University, St Petersburg State Polytechnical University)....
