Master program Physics (Nuclear, Particle, and Astrophysics)

Are you fascinated about understanding our world at the subatomic scale? Join us to learn more about the nuclei inside atoms down to the most elementary building blocks of matter!

The Master's degree program in Physics (Nuclear, Particle and Astrophysics) is a two-year graduate program taught in German, designed to give students an insight into current research trends and new developments in nuclear, particle and astrophysics.

The general structure of all our Master's degree programs in Physics is similar. It is described on the curriculum page of the Master's degree program in Physics.
