Overview of our study paths

From the Bachelor program, over one of our Master programs to the doctorate: the complete spectrum of academic education is offered at our Physics Department.

Overview of our study paths
You have achieved your higher education entrance qualification and want to study physics? Then we would like to welcome you in our Bachelor's degree program in physics. Besides a profound knowledge in the fundamentals of physics, you will obtain a deepened insight into one of four physics topics which you can choose on during your studies. By the way, if you apply for our Bachelor program in physics, you definitely will get a place!

You already have a Bachelor's degree in physics and want to expand your knowledge in a certain field? Then you should definetely have a look at our four Master's degree programs. No matter if you choose the program in biophysics, the one in particle, nuclear and astrophysics, the one in condensed matter physics or the international Master program in applied and engineering physics, by the individual choice of your courses from a huge catalog, you can configure your on study program matching your interests.

You achieved your Master's degree and want to reach a doctoral degree? The campus Garching, with its extensive number of research institutions, is the ideal location and offers a great number of opportunities to work on a doctoral thesis at the highest level, independently of the special topic of your choice.

Condensed Matter Physics

When atoms interact things can get interesting. Fundamental research on the underlying properties of materials and nanostructures and exploration of the potential they provide for applications.

Nuclear, Particle and Astrophysics

A journey of discovery to understanding our world at the subatomic scale, from the nuclei inside atoms down to the most elementary building blocks of matter. Are you ready for the adventure?


Biological systems, from proteins to living cells and organisms, obey physical principles. Our research groups in biophysics shape one of Germany's largest scientific clusters in this area.
