About

Do you like to understand why the world is the way it is? The Physics programme of the University of Oslo gives you the opportunity to choose between a wide range of topics. You can specialize in everything from quarks, cancer research and high technology to geological processes and cosmology. You can work experimentally, numerically or theoretically - or combine all three.

Overview

A brief description of the programme

Physics is the foundation of technological advancement, such as LED light bulbs, quantum computers or solar cells. Other fields are also advanced by use of physics, such as medical devices like CT, MRI and so on. One may think all great questions in physics have already been answered, but in the coming years new, large experiments and observatories are expected to lead to breakthroughs in our understanding of the beginning of the universe and the smallest building blocks in the universe – among other things.

As a student in the Physics programme of the University of Oslo you can contribute to developing artificial intelligence, nanotechnology or medicine, or solving environmental problems. Studying physics is largely about exploring new things and phenomena we still don’t understand, and as a master’s student at the Department of Physics you can potentially discover new and unthought-of applications of physics.

Master’s students here can choose between the following specializatons:

  • Biological and Medical Physics – here you will see physics used on a broad spectrum of problems related to biology and medicine.
  • Materials, Nanophysics and Quantum Technology – this is a field with many applications, such as solar cells, superconductors and quantum computers.
  • Nuclear and Particle Physics – this field of research study the smallest building blocks in the universe and the forces acting on them.    
  • Physics Didactics – Didactic physics is about teaching and learning in physics, and how physics fits in society.
  • Space Physics and Technology – here you will typically work with analyzing data from satellites and sounding rockets, or developing technology used in satellites.
  • Theoretical Physics – here you will work with general theoretical questions in fields such as nuclear and particle physics, cosmology and quantum phenomena for large systems.
