Master courses in Physics (advanced level)

Welcome to master studies at the University of Gothenburg (GU = "Göteborgs Universitet"). At the Department of Physics at GU there are two master programs that are co-organized with the Department of Physics at Chalmers University of Technology (CTH = "Chalmers Tekniska Högskola").

 Master program at GU:

Coordinator:

 Corresponding name at CTH:

Complex Adaptive System (N2CAS) Mats Granath  Complex Adaptive System (MPCAS)
Physics (N2PHS)    Anders Hellman        Physics (MPPHS)

The list below shows the master courses within these programs. There are some important notes to consider as a GU-student, please also look at the overview of your program at the bottom of this page.

General information for courses at GU:

Specific information for program students (at any of the two programs above)

Specific information for students admitted to a single subject master course (“fristående kurs”) at University Admissions in Sweden:

For course content and schedule, search by CTH code, see below.

If a course do not show up on above "course content" link, the course might have been cancelled. Please contact studieexpeditionen@physics.gu.se if this occurs.
