Programme overview

Critical and Pedagogical Studies is an international post-graduate study programme leading to a Master of Fine Arts degree, working across borders between art theory, practice and pedagogy.

This is a pioneering programme that seeks to examine the ways in which critical theory and pedagogy inform artistic practice. Theory will be viewed as a practice, and practice will be theorised. Key issues and topics of discussion are pedagogical strategies such as artists teaching artists and the artist’s role in mediating to a public, combined with critical thinking on artistic production, with an openness to learn and experiment. The curriculum is in constant development and is well suited for artists working from a hybrid or expanded practice. The students and programme facilitators work together to shape the programme structure through group dialogue and critical examination of the content as it suits the participants’ areas of interest, while responding to relevant topics of the day.

This Master's programme in Biological Physics and Computational Biology combines a solid base of courses in theoretical and mathematical physics with courses in other subjects given at the relevant departments, such as physics, chemistry and biology. [+]

Programme overview

Why should a physicist study biology? As a matter of fact, they already have for quite some time. Many famous physicists, such as Richard Feynman, Wolfgang Pauli, Niels Bohr, Max Delbrück and Erwin Schrödinger to name a few, had profound interests in biological problems and some made substantial progress to specific fields such as molecular biology.

Biology is increasingly becoming a quantitative science and has a range of fundamentally unresolved problems at hand, e.g. how biomolecules adopt their specific shape, how they interact in cells and how cells divide and communicate. The methods of theoretical physics, among others statistical methods, modelling and simulation, can provide a powerful toolbox for approaching many of these problems.... [-]

Materials make up everything around us and their properties are critical to the performance of any system or device where they are used. Almost every aspect of modern society is touched by a technology made possible by advances in materials. Mobile phones, catalytic converters, light-emitting diodes (LEDs), solar cells, optical fibres and smart window materials are all examples of modern technology based upon tailored materials. Since the properties of a material (which determine its function) are determined both by its structure, constituents and the way that the material is assembled, the study of materials involves many different approaches. Materials science is inherently multidisciplinary and relies often on both theoretical modelling and on experimental characterisation.... [-]

Programme overview

What are the fundamental constituents of matter and what forces act upon them? Particle physics is the subject that addresses the fundamental principles governing our world: forces and constituents. This understanding is formulated mathematically as theories (previously called laws of nature). The subject matter  evolves through experimental explorations and development of theories and models. Today our understanding is described by the Standard Model theory, which has an exceptional predictive power, but is incomplete. We explore the predictions of the Standard Model and seek a more complete understanding, i.e. beyond the Standard Model. In practice we conduct the research in global experimental collaborations. Today these experiments are mainly done at the LHC collider at CERN.... [-]
