Course summary

Physics at Aberdeen offers understanding of physics applied to other areas of science. You can study this in combination with Philosophy. Physics at Aberdeen offers a thoughtful balance between understanding basic principles of physics and showing how physics can be applied to other areas of science.The fascination with how the world works used to be called “Natural philosophy” and there was little distinction between a physicist and philosopher. If you want to explore the big questions of “life, the universe and everything” understanding how the universe works, but also thinking about the philosophical ramifications of these great theories - this could be the degree for you, consisting of a 75% component of physics and a 25% component of philosophy.
