Degree projects in Astronomy or Theoretical physics
This is a general overview of the different degree project courses in Astronomy and Theoretical physics. For more detailed information about the courses, we refer to the corresponding course pages in Canvas:
In theses course, you will choose an independent degree project corresponding to 15, 30 or 60 credits, in consultation with your supervisor and the course responsible. The project should, preferably, be linked to a current research project at the department.
Students are encouraged to contact possible supervisors in advance and discuss projects, and also to suggest projects themselves. Project suggestions and more information specific to the subject area and level can be found on the course pages in Canvas.
As part of the course you will, through several mandatory course elements, get training in academic writing in English, popular science writing, academic conduct and the use of library resources. More information about the mandatory course elements can be found on the degree project pages of the Department of Physics, which is also where you should go if you are planning to do your project there:
