Physics

Our flagship Physics degree is a brilliant opportunity to complete an integrated Master’s course. It’s the ideal programme if you’re looking for a future in research or academia, putting you in an excellent position to go on to PhD study. Physics is concerned with the most fundamental questions about nature. It’s an inspiring subject that enables you to cultivate your abstract, creative reasoning and your practical, applied knowledge. Throughout the course you will develop an impressive range of transferable skills in mathematics, communication and collaborative work. You will also build practical professional skills in areas like academic research, analytical problem solving and computing. These are highly sought-after skills for which employers in several sectors specifically prefer physics graduates. Physics is not only a fascinating discipline, but a highly regarded qualification too. Study with us at UEA and you’ll develop a deep curiosity about the workings of our universe and gain powerful scientific skills to employ in a huge range of areas, so you’ll leave as a highly employable graduate. **Course Structure** The first two years of your four-year degree will follow a similar programme to the BSc course, then in your third and fourth years you’ll take your knowledge and understanding further as you select from a greater range of advanced optional modules. **Year 1** Your first year will consist of six compulsory modules, giving you a solid grounding in a wide range of topics. You’ll be introduced to key physics concepts, start developing crucial mathematical skills, and learn about some of the scientific fields that these skills can be applied to. Modules cover topics including light, atoms, mechanics, electromagnetism, the dynamic planet and astrophysics. **Year 2** Building on the foundations laid in year one, your second year will include teaching in intermediate physics topics, mathematics for scientists, quantum mechanics and thermodynamics. You’ll be able to pick from a range of optional modules covering electronics, oceanography, meteorology, geophysics, special relativity and renewable energy. **Year 3** In your third year you’ll hone your abilities and understanding in compulsory topics such as advanced laboratory skills, and conduct an independent research project bringing together the theoretical knowledge and practical skills you’ve developed so far. Optional modules can cover topics such as electricity and magnetism, science communications and climate systems. **Year 4** In your final year you’ll conduct an independent research project at the Master’s level in an area of your choosing. It will be undertaken alongside the taught module Advanced Topics in Physics, as well as several optional advanced modules, covering topics such as modern embedded technology, quantum fluids, a geosciences field course and dynamical meteorology. **Disclaimer** Course details are subject to change.
