Curriculum & Modules

The master program consists of the parts listed in the table below, which – except for the research part – can be studied in any order and also in parallel.

The research part essentially is a large continuous project comprising progress reports (in form of presentations) which concludes the master program. Usually the whole research part is carried out coherently in one of the research groups.

Study Schedule

Here you find a typical schedule. It is not only possible, but necessary to plan your own schedule or to at least adapt this study schedule to your individual needs. I.e. if you do the mandatory advanced theory module in your first or in your second semester depends on your choice: Advanced Statistical Physics is only offered in the winter term, Advanced Quantum Mechanics only in the summer term.
