Physics and Astronomy
The physics curriculum broadly covers both classical and quantum physics. Third year students are introduced to current research in condensed matter physics, particle physics, astrophysics, and applied physics.
- Physics (Track 100) B.Sc. – sm (0321)
- Combined Mathematics - Physics program – B.Sc. (0323)
- Combined Physics Electrical Engineering – B.Sc. (0516)
- Physics and Computer Science B.Sc. – dm (0321.0369)
- Physics and Geosciences B.Sc. – dm (0321.0341)
- Physics and Chemistry B.Sc. – dm - To be combined only with track 355 each. (0321.0351)
- Combined Physics and Life Sciences B.Sc. (0321.0455)
- Physics (B.Sc.) dm – together with an additional major in any other Faculty (as dm) (0321.XXXX)
The mission of the program is to provide educational opportunities for top students, and to allow them to undertake research projects already during their undergraduate studies. These opportunities are provided primarily by means of special honors courses and seminars, in addition to the regular curriculum, individual mentoring, a research project and additional optional activities guided by faculty members in the school of physics and astronomy. The undergraduate research project may provide a basis for continued graduate research.
Physics (Track 100) (0321)
The program aims at giving the student the basic knowledge necessary for a physicist as well as a broad overview of the different branches of modern physics. Nominal completion time for the undergraduate program is three years.
Combined Mathematics – Physics Program (0323)
This program is for students who wish to major in both physics and mathematics. An undergraduate degree in this program with adequate grades allows the student to enroll for graduate studies in either of the two subjects.
Transfer to a double major program with computer Science (0321,0378)
A first year student with high academic achievements, in either 0321 or 0323 will be eligible to apply for transfer to the double major program in Physics and Computer Science.
Combined Physics – Electrical Engineering (0516)
This program is offered jointly by the School of Physics and Astronomy and the Department of Electrical Engineering (EE).
Applicants must meet the acceptance requirement of both departments. The studies lasts four years. Upon graduation, the students get one certificate indicating completion of both degrees: B.Sc in Physics and B.Sc in EE. Students who wish to do so must add 12 more credit hours in order to get two separate certificates.
Physics and Computer Science – dm (0321.0369)
Candidates must meet the admission requirements of both programs. Admission to studies in Computer Science is limited. See admission requirements to Computer Science
Physics & Geosciences (0321.0341)
This program is designed for students interested in physics and in geosciences. This program covers the main requirements of both departments and as such, requires a substantial effort by the student.
Physics and Chemistry – dm (Track 355) (0321.0351)
This program is for students who wish to obtain broad education in both physics and Chemistry. Applicants must meet the acceptance requirement of the School of Physics. An undergraduate degree in this program with adequate grades allows the student to enroll for graduate studies in either of the two subjects.
Physics and Life Sciences – B.Sc. - sm (0458)
This program is offered jointly by the School of Physics and Astronomy and the Faculty of Life sciences, for students who want to major in both subjects. An undergraduate degree in this program with adequate grades allows the student to enroll for graduate studies in either of the two fields.
Physics – dm (0321.XXXX)
This program offers the option to combine studies in physics with any other program from another faculty (as dm). Candidates must meet the admission requirements of both programs.
