The International Physics Studies Program at the Leipzig University in physics deepens and widens the basic knowledge in modern areas of experimental and theoretical physics, always founding on the knowledge obtained in a B. Sc. course in Physics.


At International Physics Studies Program at the Leipzig University students have the possibility to specialize in topical areas of physics. Students can design their M. Sc. course along their own interests, such that at the time of graduation they are specialists of either experimental physics of soft or solid matter, or theoretical and mathematical physics or applied physics.

 To this end the Peter-Debye Institute for soft matter physics, the Felix-Bloch-Institute for solid state physics, the Institute of Theoretical Physics as well as the external Leibniz-Institute of Surface Modification offer a wide variety of modules and research topics.


The Master of Science in physics completes the university education and represents the level of the Diploma. The academic degree qualifies to apply for admission for doctoral work (thesis research). Traditional operational areas of physicists are microelectronics, construction of scientific and medical devices, fine mechanics, engineering, optics, chemical industry, informatics and communication technology. Due to their analytic research concepts and problem solving strategies physicists' jobs away from physics are common.
