In your bachelor programme, you can choose between three different specialisations:

Physics, Theoretical Physics, Astronomy.

The study program outlined below applies to students who began their studies in the spring of 2020 or later.

The courses are divided into four packages:

  1. Courses compulsory to all specialisations
  2. Specialised compulsory courses
  3. Optional courses
  4. Diploma work

Courses compulsory for all specialisations:

REQUIRED COURSES for all specialisations 105 credits:

Physics A: 30 credits

Math A: 30 credits

Math B: 15 credits

Physics B: 15 credits

  • FYSB21 Mathematical methods for vibrations, waves and diffusion, 7.5 credits
  • FYSB22 Basic Quantum Mechanics, 7.5 credits
  • FYSB23 Basic Statistical Physics and Quantum Statistics 7,5 hp
  • FYSB24 Atomic and molecular physics 7,5 hp

Specialised compulsory courses and optional courses:

Depending on your specialisation, you select one of the following packages. The latter can be picked freely among all academic courses in Lund or elsewhere. Note! You have to pick one of these specialisations!

Option 1: The Physics and Astronomy specialisations:

Specialised compulsory courses 30 credits

Optional courses 30 credits

Option 2: The Theoretical Physics specialisation:

If the thesis carried out at the Department of Astronomy and Theoretical Physics:

General requirements for Bachelor's degree

For Bachelor of Science degree you need to pass at least 90 hp of courses in the main field (in this case Physics) and at least 30 hp outside this field. The latter is automatically met by the required 45 credits of mathematics.

 

The Meteorology specialisation is currently dormant

Specialised compulsory courses 60 credits
