Physics (541) - Bachelor's Degree            
 
Physics is the most basic natural science, which attempts to decipher the basic laws of nature, from the microscopic composition of matter to the structure of the entire universe.
 
Study of physics represents a fascinating intellectual challenge, and trains the teaching, research and development personnel who are in greatest demand in academia and industry.
 
Physics, as a natural science, combines laboratory experiments with theoretical research where the main research tools are mathematics and the computer.
 
In the first years of study, the basics of mathematics and physics, experimental and theoretical, are imparted. Later, students are exposed to advanced subjects in modern physics.
 
MSc studies, which generally extend over two years, are composed of compulsory courses, elective courses and a final research project. Specialization is expressed through the composition of courses and the subject of the project.
 
MSc students are integrated in the advanced research teams of the Institute of Physics.

Master’s courses in the faculty are given in Hebrew unless a foreign student who does not speak Hebrew is taking the course. In such a case the course will be given in English.

לקראת מוסמך

1. Eligible to submit their candidacy for the MSc are holders of a BSc in “extended single teaching program Physics” or “single teaching program Physics” from the Hebrew University with a minimum weighted grade of 80. Students whose final grade is at least 85 are admitted directly. The admission of students whose BSc average is below 85 must be approved by the teaching program’s admissions committee. Students who completed BSc studies in Physics at a recognized academic institution with the same results may apply for MSc studies.


2. Students who studies in the “single teaching program Physics” track must take supplementary studies, including compulsory courses that they had not yet taken, and particularly the courses Analytical Electrodynamics, Quantum Theory II, Introduction to Statistical Physics and Equations of Mathematical Physics, Introduction to Research. Students can be admitted to MSc studies only after fulfilling the requirements of supplementary studies with the conditions as determined and in accordance with the BSc studies program.
