About

As a Master's student in the Physics, Theoretical Physics programme at Lund University you will become part of a vibrant research community engaged in cutting-edge theoretical studies.

Overview

In the Physics, Theoretical Physics programme at Lund University, you can choose from studying the smallest constituents of matter and their interactions within theoretical high energy physics via nuclear and solid state physics within mathematical physics, all the way to protein folding and plant growth within biophysics and computational biology. In all cases you will get a solid basis of theoretical knowledge needed to develop new models and to better understand how nature works.

Career prospects

A Master of Science in Theoretical Physics will give you ample opportunities for pursuing a wide variety of careers depending on your specialisation. Whereas many students to on to do a PhD in theoretical physics and related subjects, it is also possible to find suitable careers outside of academia, for example in the fields of information and communication technology or energy production, where advanced programming and modelling skills are needed.
