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 undertake your third year at one of our partner universities in the USA or Canada, studying equivalent coures as the students on the Theoretical Physics with Mathematics degree scheme at Lancaster, such as Particle Physics, Hilbert Spaces and a Second Quantization project 

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.
