Graduates will possess extensive, cohesive knowledge of theoretical physics, proficiency in using sophisticated mathematics and advanced computer methods, including digital simulations. MA should concern topics related to the theory of solids, field theory, theory of elementary particles or astrophysics, nanophysics or quantum information science.
Graduates from Theoretical Physics will have thorough knowledge of physics and mathematics, which makes them fully-fledged specialists who are capable of taking employment at universities and scientific institutions. They can also continue their education with PhD studies. Moreover, they will be sufficiently prepared to work in IT companies or any entities requiring practical knowledge concerning operation of computers.
