# Courses

The Department of Astronomy and Theoretical Physics offers a number of courses in its two subject areas, at both undergraduate level (first cycle) and advanced level (second cycle). Many of the courses are relevant to both areas and to physics students in general, and some are more broadly cross-disciplinary.

The course page links go to course information pages in Canvas, where you can find information about syllabus, schedule, teachers, course evaluations and where to apply.
