Coordinating University:University of Santiago de CompostelagoalsTo train graduates capable of observing, cataloging and modeling the phenomena of nature through their knowledge of the different branches of Physics, enabling their access to the labor market in positions of medium-high level of responsibility or to continue studies, with a high degree of autonomy, in scientific or technological disciplines.
Develop in students a clear perception of apparently different situations but that show obvious physical analogies, which allows the application of proven solutions to new problems.
To empower students to identify the essential elements of a process or a complete situation that allows them to build a simplified model that describes, with the necessary approximation, the object of study and makes it possible to make predictions about its future evolution. You must also be able to check the validity of the model by making the necessary modifications when discrepancies are observed between the predictions and the observations.
To familiarize the student with the work in the laboratory, the instrumentation and the most used experimental methods.
Transmit the relevance of Physics in the current science scene as well as the important role it plays in the technological development of our society. Instill in the student a vision of Physics as an integral part of Education and Culture that allows them to recognize its presence in Nature through Science, Technology and Art.
Transmit to students respect for fundamental rights and equality between men and women, respect and promotion of Human Rights as well as the principles of equal opportunities, non-discrimination and universal accessibility for people with disabilities.Basic skillsThat students have demonstrated to possess and understand knowledge in an area of study that starts from the base of general secondary education, and is usually found at a level that, although supported by advanced textbooks, also includes some aspects that imply knowledge from the forefront of your field of study;
That students know how to apply their knowledge to their work or vocation in a professional way and possess the competencies that are usually demonstrated through the elaboration and defense of arguments and the resolution of problems within their area of study;
That students have the ability to gather and interpret relevant data (usually within their area of study) to make judgments that include reflection on relevant issues of a social, scientific or ethical nature;
That students can transmit information, ideas, problems and solutions to both a specialized and non-specialized audience;
That the students have developed those learning skills necessary to undertake further studies with a high degree of autonomy.CurriculumItineraries or mentions:

Credit transfer and recognition:
It consists of the acceptance by a university of the credits that were obtained in an official education, in the same or in another university, and that are computed in other different education for the purposes of obtaining an official degree.
It implies that in the official academic documents accrediting the successive teachings for each student, the totality of the credits obtained in official teachings taken previously, at the same or at another university, that have not led to the obtaining of an official degree, will be included.
The USC regulates these two figures in the following regulations published on the web:
Recognition of university activities and transversal competences of the usc:
Students will be able to obtain up to a maximum of 12 optional credits for the recognition of the activities contemplated in article 12.8 of RD 1393/2007 and of the transversal competences of the USC. Cross-cutting competences for all USC Master's degrees are considered instrumental knowledge of (1) foreign languages; (2) Galician language, and (3) information and communication technologies. In any case, the maximum number of recognizable credits for the activities of article 12.8 of RD 1393/2007 will be 6.Professional outingsPhysics studies offer job expectations that go beyond the scope of Teaching and Research. Thus we could highlight: Public Administration, Quality and Consulting, Production and R&D, Finance and Banking, Information Technology and Telecommunications, Engineering and Communication, etc. In fact, in recent years, around 58% of graduates from Physics Faculties work in sectors other than teaching (university and non-university) and university research, which, of course, will continue to be an important field employment for physicists in the future.
