Masters degrees in Nuclear & Particle Physics involve advanced study of matter at the atomic and sub-atomic levels, including analysis of the structure and behaviour of nuclei within atoms.
Related subjects include Theoretical Physics and Experimental Physics. Entry requirements typically include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject such as Physics or Chemistry.
Since the discovery of gravity, the oldest known forcefield, physicists have been fascinated by the laws of nature governing the universe. Courses in this area encourage you to examine the smallest detectable particles that constitute matter and radiation, and explain the fundamental interactions behind their behaviour.
From elementary particles to the formation and evolution of the Solar System, stars, and galaxies, you will analyse a range of theories and methodologies that have developed and adapted over time to explain these phenomena. This could include using a combination of mathematical methods, computer modelling tools and experimental equipment.
Expertise in this field is fundamental across a range of industries, and careers are very broad. You may be employed in environmental conservation, medicine, pharmacology and aerospace engineering.
