The course aims to impart the ability to analyze physical problems and to independently work out (also unconventional) solutions. A successful degree in physics qualifies you for professions in which this problem-solving skills are required, ie for a wide range of research and science. In addition, the overarching goal of the course is to acquire qualified access to the master’s course in physics.

What distinguishes the study of physics at the HU?

Because physics has a great tradition at the Humboldt University - Max Planck, Erwin Schrödinger and Einstein, among others, taught here. Because here experiment and theory are taught as a unit. Because students are involved in research at an early stage. Because the Adlershof campus is appealing, where physics is embedded in a unique environment of other disciplines, young high-tech companies and non-university research institutes. Because you are particularly interested in elementary particle physics, solid state physics, macromolecules and complex systems, as well as optics / photonics as possible specializations.
