Physics aims to observe and explain the behaviour of the physical universe. In particular, physics looks for basic laws, which account for and predict what can be observed. Part of the appeal of the subject is that the physical world is governed by remarkably few such laws and that these apply everywhere and to everything. The structure of the courses reflects the structure of the subject. All students take the core modules and choose further modules from the lists of options. The core modules introduce the fundamental principles, while the optional modules explore their applications in the different areas of physics including: astrophysics, the properties of matter, particle physics and atmospheric physics. The option scheme also allows a proportion of modules to be taken from outside of physics. We encourage students not only to consider modules related to physics, for example in computing, but also modules in philosophy and modern languages. Please download the course booklet for more information. Below is a list of the individual modules in each year and more detail on their content can be found by following the links above. YEAR ONE In the first year, all students take the modules in the Core list. To give you an idea about the way the degree course is structured in the first year, the number in brackets after each module title indicates the number of lectures you will attend e.g. (15L) indicates a 15-lecture module. Core: Physics Foundations (30L), Electricity and Magnetism (30L), Quantum Phenomena (15L), Classical... [-]
