Physics and mathematics are inextricably linked. It is not really possible to understand the basic concepts of physics such as elementary particle theory without a strong grounding in both pure and applied mathematics. This BSc combines the study of mathematics and physics on an equal basis, each reinforcing the other.
Years 1 and 2: Foundations are laid with a balanced selection of courses from each department, including the following compulsory physics courses: Year 1: Electricity and magnetism; thermal physics; waves, optics and acoustics. Year 2: Atomic and molecular physics; condensed matter physics; electromagnetic theory; quantum theory. Year 3: Range of courses from both subjects, most being selected from those followed by single'subject students; students do not have to do any practical work, although this is possible if desired; compulsory physics courses: nuclear and particle physics; quantum physics; solid state physics.
