Master of Physics
Academic year :

Model Path 1st and 2nd part

Mobility is compulsory.The student has to acquire 12 ECTS-credits elsewhere for instance by following courses at an other university or by doing an internship outside the UA.

Module general courses (30 ECTS-credits)

Compulsory in the 1st year.
The student has to acquire all 30 ECTS-credits (18 ECTS-credits for the option Management and Entrepreneurship or the option Education) from the list below.
Students who choose the option Management and Entrepreneurship can replace the courses “Statistical and mathematical physics” and “Symmetry in physics” with courses from the research modules (=12 ECTS-credits in consultation with the promotor).
