About this Study Course

In the dynamic realm of Physics within the Master of Education curriculum, our aim transcends mere understanding; we delve deep into capturing the essence of natural phenomena, both quantitatively and qualitatively, elucidating them through universally applicable physical laws.

Our program is at the vanguard of experimental and theoretical physics, where students embark on a journey of discovery, from conducting hands-on experiments in atomic and solid-state physics to unraveling the mysteries of nuclear and elementary particle physics. Theoretical physics, conversely, provides a logical and mathematical framework to comprehend the intricate interplay of objects and forces on both macroscopic and microscopic scales, starting from fundamental axioms. Through engaging narratives and cutting-edge insights, we equip our students to not only grasp the current paradigms but also to envision the future possibilities that await them in the ever-evolving field of physics education.

Overview

Transitioning from bachelor’s to master’s, our Master of Education degree program transcends the conventional boundaries of subject-specific knowledge. Here, the focus shifts towards the fusion of educational sciences and subject didactics, empowering students to become adept educators in the field of physics. Embracing innovative teaching methodologies, students explore the intricacies of both teacher-directed and student-led experiments, preparing them for the multifaceted challenges of modern classrooms.

With an option to choose a second subject alongside physics and delve into educational sciences, our program ensures a holistic approach towards pedagogical excellence. The practical semester serves as a cornerstone, providing invaluable hands-on experience that bridges theory with practice, thereby shaping well-rounded educators poised to make a profound impact in the realm of physics education.
