The master's program Mathematical Physics at the University of Tübingen is a research oriented interdisciplinary program geared towards fundamental research at the interface of mathematics and physics.


Starting from October 2017 and yearly afterwards, the Mathematics Department and the Physics Department at the University of Tübingen are jointly offering an international two-year master's program in Mathematical Physics.

In contrast to the information on the poster and the flyer, there will be no official deadline for applications from within the European Union and all qualified applicants will be admitted. The deadline for applicants from outside the European Union is July 15. In case you are unsure about your qualification for the program, feel free to send us your application by e-mail in advance before submitting it officially.

The development of modern Mathematics and of modern Physics are strongly interwoven. On the one hand, our modern picture of the physical world is formulated in terms of advanced mathematical theories and models. On the other hand, many developments in modern Mathematics were motivated from or even anticipated within Physics.

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.

Career Prospects

  • This master's program is designed to prepare students for a research career in academia or industry by introducing advanced ideas and techniques in the area of mathematical modeling and analysis that are applicable not only within physics but to a wide range of research areas and sectors in academia, industry, education, and finance.
  • Mathematical physicists with a graduate degree have a strong reputation for general versatility and problem-solving skills that make them highly sought after for high-level positions even in fields such as finance, software or management consulting. In industry, graduates in Mathematical Physics are sought after in all technology driven fields where professionals with advanced skills in mathematical modeling are a scarce resource.
