The two-year master studies in theoretical physics provide a high-level, internationally competitive training in theoretical physics, guiding to frontiers of modern research in the following main areas:

  1. Compact stars
  2. Classical and quantum gravity. Gravitational waves.
  3. Neutrino physics
  4. Quantum field theory and QCD, quark-gluon plasma
  5. Quantum information and quantum optics.
  6. Modern quantum mechanics, entanglement, nonlinear dynamics
  7. Supersymmetric quantum mechanics, integrable models.

A comprehensive and up-to-date introduction to modern theoretical physics is provided in connection to the current research conducted at the Institute of Theoretical Physics. Students can join one of the active groups and take part in special projects.

The studies offer considerable flexibility and choice. You will be able to choose a path reflecting your intellectual tastes or career choices. You may prefer a broad theoretical education across subject areas or if you have already decided about your profile, you may follow a more selective path. With our diploma, you will be entitled to apply to the PhD School at the Department of Physics and Astronomy and develop your scientific career under the supervision of one of our faculty members.

We will assess your performance by one or several of the following means:

  • written exams
  • course work marked on a pass/fail basis
  • take-home papers
  • mini-projects.

The modes of assessment for a given course are decided by the course lecturer and will be published at the beginning of each academic year.

The course starts if a minimum number of three students is enrolled for the first year.

We are international

At the Institute we used to have international students coming from variety of countries including Germany, India, Italy, Iran, Morocco, Portugal, Spain, Ukraine, USA. Our scientific staff is essentially international: Polish, German, Armenian, Italian, Japanese, and Ukrainian. We presently guest long-term researchers from Iran and China.
