The Physics programme from The Hebrew University of Jerusalem represent a fascinating intellectual challenge, training teaching, research and development personnel for whom there is greatest demand in academia and industry.

As a natural science, physics combines laboratory experiments with theoretical research where the main research tools are mathematics and the computer.

In the first years of study the bases of mathematics and physics, experimental and theoretical, are imparted. Later students are exposed to advanced subjects in modern physics.


Each year, about 30 Master students begin their studies in the M.Sc program at the Racah Institute. The purpose of the master's program is to further develop knowledge and skills in physics and to prepare students for a professional career or doctoral studies. The program spans two years during which students take various advance courses and carry out forefront research in the departments of Physics and Applied Physics.
