In the Master Programme in Physics - Theoretical Physics - Quantum Fields and Strings from Uppsala University you will learn from a world-recognised physics group with a wide range of interests in the modern study of quantum field theory and string theory.


Physics - Theoretical Physics - Quantum Fields and Strings delivered by Uppsala University  covers the entire length scale from subatomic strings to the whole universe, with forefront research across all sub-branches of physics - from research on elementary particles and materials, the structure of the earth and its atmosphere, to space and the properties of the universe.

This breadth allows the group to supervise degree projects in many key areas, including conformal field theory, applications of the AdS/CFT correspondence, scattering amplitudes, cosmology, integrability of gauge theories, mathematical physics and standard-model and beyond-the-standard-model physics.


With a Master's degree in physics, you will be qualified for PhD studies in physics and many of our students continue as PhD students, at Uppsala University or elsewhere. You will also have the opportunity to work with research and development at various companies and public authorities.

Recent graduates have found PhD positions at e.g. Uppsala University, Stockholm University, the University of Jena.
