Course description

The M.Sc. program Physics International spans two years. In the first year, students dive into a comprehensive curriculum of lectures, seminars, and lab courses. This phase aims to deepen and broaden their knowledge, building on their B.Sc.-level studies. The second year shifts focus to hands-on research. Students join a faculty research team, working on a topical project in physics under the guidance of a professor or senior scientist. This culminates in a master thesis. The program aligns with the Bologna process of the European Higher Education Area. Students will engage in courses covering experimental and theoretical physics, participate in an advanced seminar, and complete an advanced lab course. A wide array of elective courses is available, many of which delve into current research topics. These electives are taught by active researchers, providing students with insights that prepare them for their own research endeavors. Students are encouraged to reach out to potential master thesis supervisors early. This helps them choose lectures that best align with their thesis topics, ensuring they are well-prepared for their research journey.

Proof of a) Competences on a scale totalling at least 24 ECTS from modules in the following sub-areas of experimental physics: Mechanics, electromagnetism, optics, thermodynamics, atomic und molecular physics, solid state physics, nuclear and elementary particle physics, b) Competences on a scale of at least 22 ECTS from modules in the following sub-areas of theoretical physics: Theoretical mechanics, quantum mechanics, theoretical electrodynamics, statistical mechanics, thermodynamics, c) Competences on a scale of at least 22 ECTS from modules in the following sub-areas of mathematics: Analysis, linear algebra, differential equations, complex analysis, d) Competences on a scale of at least 12 ECTS from physics laboratory courses in the following sub-areas: Mechanics, thermodynamics, electrics, atomic and nuclear physics, optics, computer systems and metrology, e) Competences on a scale of at least a further 30 ECTS from modules in the overall field of physics or minor subjects related to physics, and f) A thesis on a scale of at least 10 ECTS on a topic from a sub-area of physics or in the case of an interdisciplinary thesis on a topic in which physics methods are essentially applied, according to the ECTS credits scheme used at JMU for the B.Sc. in Physics or – in the case of programmes not modularised within the meaning of the ECTS credits scheme – competences on the corresponding scale (as a rule acquired in the framework of the first degree indicated under Letter a)). The required competences are taught at JMU in particular in the framework of the B.Sc. in Physics (180 ECTS credits).
