Master's programmes

After a bachelor's degree in physics, you may want to continue to broaden and deepen your knowledge and go for a two-year master's degree in astrophysics or physics.

Three master's programmes are offered by the Department of Astronomy and Theoretical Physics: a specialised master's programme in astrophysics at Lund Observatory, as well as master's programmes in Theoretical physics and in Biological physics and computational biology. The latter two are given as specialisations of the Physics master's programme in collaboration with the Department of Physics, each with its own set of required courses but also with considerable freedom to choose among physics courses to compose your own profile.

For your master's degree you need to write a master's thesis, and we suggest that you pick a subject from one of our research groups: astrophysics, theoretical particle physics or computational biology and biological physics.
