Coordinating University:University of Santiago de CompostegoalsThis double degree aims to provide students with the rigor, capacity for abstraction and logical argument that characterizes mathematical thinking while acquiring the necessary skills to develop models applied to solving physical problems.
The experimental and computational training will provide them with tools to verify the validity of the proposed models as well as evidence for the development of others.
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:
Students will take 34.5 elective credits, at least 4.5 to choose from among the optional subjects offered in the Physics Degree and 6 among those offered in the Mathematics Degree. It will not be necessary to take the rest of the electivity of each degree, 22.5 in the Degree in Physics and 30 in the Degree in Mathematics, as the minimum skills required are covered by the competencies of the compulsory subjects of the complementary degree in each case .
Temporal arrangement of studies:
It is not contemplated
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 outingsThe set of competencies acquired from the two degrees will provide these students with an even more versatile profile, expanding the areas in which they can develop professionally by having access to the labor market of mathematicians and physicists.
