Theoretical and Mathematical Physics (Master)

Degree: Master of Science (M.Sc.)
Description: This elite master program offers students both an in-depth and broad education in theoretical and mathematical physics, cornerstones of our modern knowledge-based society. Two aspects are of particular importance: the interdisciplinarity between modern theoretical physics and mathematics; and the transdisciplinarity, i.e., the transfer of knowledge from one discipline to a related one. The master program is supported by the Elite Network of Bavaria and includes courses in the following areas of theoretical physics and mathematics: advanced and applied quantum mechanics; quantum field theory and gauge theories; cosmology, general relativity and differential geometry; string theory and geometry; statistical physics and stochastics.
Program start: winter semester only
Duration: 4 semesters
Faculty: Faculty of Physics
Tuition: There are no tuition fees for this course. There is, however, a semester fee of 128 € for each student comprising a student services contribution (62 €) and a basic fee for public transportation (66,50 €).
Where to enroll: This is a joint master program with the Technische Universität München within the framework of the Elite Network of Bavaria. Enrollment is through LMU Munich.
Admission requirements: Candidates must hold a bachelor degree or Vordiplom in mathematics or physics and must have proof of excellent English. The program website offers details on admission requirements.
