Further, in physical and non-physical subjects the 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 programme

The International Physics Studies program at the Leipzig University is research oriented and is concluded by an independent research project, the master thesis.

By teaching a broad variety of knowledge and methodical competences it ideally prepares the graduates for an excellent start in the job market, which in the future will present great challenges with its rapidly changing demands.
