What Will You Study

Taught jointly with Lancaster’s Department of Mathematics, our degree in Theoretical Physics with

Mathematics combines core Physics and specialised Theoretical Physics subjects with classes in Pure Mathematics. This equips you with an understanding of the mathematical foundations of Physics – for example you will learn how quantum mechanics is underpinned by the powerful mathematical concept of a Hilbert space.

In your first year you will cover the core of Physics in courses such as Quantum Physics and Electromagnetism, and the core of Mathematics including real and complex analysis and algebra. In years two and three, the core Physics courses are complemented by courses from the Theoretical Physics scheme and Mathematical topics such as group theory and functional analysis.
