Overview

The aim of the master’s study programme “Physics” is to prepare highly qualified and internationally competitive master-level physics specialists for the labour market, providing an opportunity to specialise in sub-disciplines of physics specific to Latvia with high research and innovation potential and stimulating the acquisition of interdisciplinary competence during studies. University of Latvia offers specializations in solid state and material physics, physics of continuous media, atomic, molecular and optical physics, theoretical physics as well as a list of interdisciplinary courses related to quantum computing, physical chemistry, etc. The program is organized in collaboration with Daugavpils University (located in Daugavpils, Latvia), which offers the specialization in technology physics.

Tasks of the study programme
1) To encourage students to develop as professionals in the field by providing the opportunity to complement the knowledge and skills acquired in the BSc programme in their chosen specialisation in physics.
2) To give students the opportunity to gain experience in independent research under the guidance of a supervisor.
3) To enhance students’ scientific research skills and competence in analysing research problems.
4) To develop students’ critical and creative thinking, reasoning and decision-making skills, and the ability to apply acquired knowledge and competences in physics and interdisciplinary research.
5) Ensure flexibility of the restricted elective part of the study programme in line with labour market requirements.
6) Ensure effective and monitorable delivery of the planned programme results.
7) To create the conditions for graduates to successfully pursue studies at doctoral level.

Career opportunities

Already during study time most students get involved in research projects and are employed by one of the research labs and institutes of the University of Latvia or innovative companies. After graduation, you can continue your academic growth in doctoral studies or immediately enter the labour market.
