Physics with Astrophysics at York gives students an understanding of the scale and physical processes at work in the Universe. The MPhys Physics with Astrophysics degree programme includes a good all-round knowledge of physics, but with a special focus in both theoretical and experimental, astrophysics. Special courses allow you to pursue a broad understanding of modern astrophysics across the electromagnetic spectrum including stars, galaxies and the exotic concepts of dark matter and dark energy. Further courses allow you to specialise in contemporary research areas of the department areas such as plasmas and particle astrophysics. A research project in the final year develops independent experimental and research skills in the discipline.
