Course summary

Lancaster’s particle physicists work with state-of-the-art particle accelerators to investigate and identify the nature of space and time. Our resident cosmologists employ all of their creative and mathematical abilities to explain the early history of the universe in a way that complements and supports observational and experimental data. All this expertise is translated into an exciting, modern physics course based on the foundation of our core physics programme.

Throughout your degree you will take a range of subjects including Quantum Physics and Electromagnetism in the first year, as well as Astronomy, Detection of Particles and Introductory Cosmology in the second year. In your third year, your modules include Big Bang Cosmology, Flavour Physics and Particle Physics laboratory studies.

Careers

Physics is an exciting subject that is fundamental to the developments in modern society. Applications of the subject range from the very pure to the very practical, and a physics degree opens up a wide range of rewarding careers in scientific research and technological development, as well as in a variety of other professions. A substantial number of our graduates continue on to postgraduate education, or enter employment that directly relies on their specialist skills. Our students also find employment in careers where they are valued because of general skills gained during the course such as logical thinking, problem solving, numeracy and computer literacy. Examples include consulting, finance, computer programming, and accountancy, as well as managerial and administrative positions.
