Theoretical Physics and Astrophysics

General information

The goal of the study is to provide the best students of the Bachelor's programme in Physics with a deeper physical understanding and to widen and cultivate their knowledge using advanced methods of mathematics and mathematical physics. The field of study consists of two disciplines: Astrophysics, which provides education in the physics of cosmological objects, and Theoretical Physics, providing education in the physics of the very small and very large - quantum mechanics, quantum field theory, string theory and general relativity.

The programme aims at qualifying students to work in the profession of a physicist, in particular to prepare them for independent scientific research in specific branches of physics.

A successful graduate is able to

  • display an intimate knowledge of the fundamental laws governing the natural world
  • independently solve complex problems in the field of theoretical, experimental and applied physical research
  • use and apply standard modern laboratory techniques
  • use mathematical methods and abstract thinking in solving problems appearing in all areas of human endeavour

Graduate employment

Graduates of Astrophysics can work as specialists in any observatory or in a planetarium with public education. They will also have a good basic knowledge of different aspects of physics of stars and other parts of present day astrophysics. Graduates of Theoretical Physics will have a good basic knowledge of modern quantum theory (quantum optics, quantum theory of fields, quantum gravity) as well as advanced methods of mathematical physics.
