The Mathematical Physics programme from University of Tübingen is a research oriented interdisciplinary programme geared towards fundamental research at the interface of mathematics and physics. 


In the Mathematical Physics programme from University of Tübingen, students will learn advanced mathematical concepts and fundamental physical theories in a specific interdisciplinary study program.

What is special about the Tübingen program?

In contrast to several other programs in Mathematical Physics, the Tübingen program has its focus on established physical theories with important applications in science and technology. The main areas are Quantum Theory, General Relativity, and Statistical Physics, reflecting the main research areas present in Tübingen's Mathematics and Physics Departments. So if you are interested in understanding our most successful physical theories on the most fundamental level, this master program is tailor made for you.

Every student will be assigned a mentor from the group of professors involved in the master program. In particular, the choice of modules for each semester must be discussed with and approved by the mentor. This ensures that students choose matching modules in line with their desired specialization.

Programme Structure

Courses include: 

  • In the Tübingen master's program in Mathematical Physics, students will learn advanced mathematical concepts and fundamental physical theories in a specific interdisciplinary study program. 
  • Apart from the mandatory core modules Geometry in Physics, Mathematical Quantum Theory, Mathematical Relativity, and Mathematical Statistical Physics, students can choose between a wide variety of advanced courses in Mathematics, Theoretical Physics, and Mathematical Physics. 
  • Thereby they can specialize according to their personal preferences in certain areas of Mathematics and/or Physics. During the second year we offer a Mathematical Physics Colloquium where students learn about recent developments in Mathematical Physics and also present the results of their own master thesis research.
