Following the footprints of famous former professors such as W. Heisenberg, F. Klein or F. Bloch in our new 2-year master course students learn general principles of mathematics and theoretical physics, in-depth knowledge on selected topics and do independent research under the guidance of a professor. By solving complex problems and transferring concepts to related fields, the students prepare for a job in academia or industry and economy.

Special features:

– international – English as course language

– interdisciplinary – joint initiative of Mathematics and Physics departments

– forefront research – supported by the local Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in the Sciences

– no tuition fees; semester fee of 220 EUR

Students can shape the program along their own preferences! We offer a wide range of courses on:

– Dynamical Systems

– Differential Geometry

– Stochastic Processes

– Gravity and Cosmology

– Condensed and Soft Matter

– Partial Differential Equations

– Particles and Quantum Fields

We would be more than happy to welcome interested students in our vibrant city with a rich cultural scene, affordable housing and a lot of green spaces and nearby lakes. The course starts annually in October. Application deadlines (May 31st – September 15th) depend on the current degree of the applicant.
