Course Overview

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. Topics include real and complex analysis, algebra and group theory and functional analysis. This degree will equip you with an understanding of the foundations of the mathematical tools used in Physics.

You begin with core Physics courses including Quantum Physics and Electromagnetism before learning about a range of topics in your second year, such as Further Classical Mechanics, Classical Field Theory and Complex Analysis. You will go on to complete a Second Quantization project and study Particle Physics and Hilbert Spaces in your third year.

In your final year we offer you a range of possible topics for your extended final year project. Recent project topics include adatoms on graphene, silicine, photonic crystals, topological insulators, fundamentals of radiation reaction and gravitational waves.
