Top 50 Master's Programs in Physics 2019

The benefits of a Masters extend beyond improving your earning potential. They can provide you with personal and professional skills to accelerate your development. They are also an opportunity to differentiate yourself from your peers, many of whom will have similar A-level and undergraduate qualifications.

Physics is the science that studies the relationships between all physical objects. The Science of Physics is the study of the very big as well as the study of the very small. Physics concerns itself with the mathematical interpretation of these worlds. Studying physics at either an undergraduate level and later at a postgraduate level will provide you with long-lasting tools to face analytical challenges in your professional life. Although a main pathway in physics is to engage in research and technology development, physicists are highly-sought after in several industries as their power to analyse and understand patterns and complex systems are unrivalled by other sciences.

Physics aims to observe and explain the behaviour of the physical universe. In particular, physics looks for basic laws, which account for and predict what can be observed. Part of the appeal of the subject is that the physical world is governed by remarkably few such laws and that these apply everywhere and to everything.

The structure of the courses reflects the structure of the subject. All students take the core modules and choose further modules from the lists of options. The core modules introduce the fundamental principles, while the optional modules explore their applications in the different areas of physics including astrophysics, the properties of matter, particle physics and atmospheric physics. The option scheme also allows a proportion of modules to be taken from outside of physics. We encourage students not only to consider modules related to physics, for example in computing but also modules in philosophy and modern languages.... [-]

Advanced materials with sizes ranging from nano to macro are at the core of many modern technologies. Therefore, it is important to understand and control the material properties from the atomic to the macroscopic scales. The "Physics and technology of advanced materials" MSc specialization focuses on understanding and manipulating the physical properties of materials to discover new features with application relevance. The deepening in the specific domain, mentioned above, is particularly important given the need for knowledge of how to obtain monocrystalline or nano-microsystems with well-defined properties and qualities and how to characterize their properties.
