Physics (541) - Master's Degree            
Physics is the most fundamental natural science, which attempts to decipher the basic laws of nature, ranging from the microscopic composition of matter to the structure of the whole universe.
Studies of physics represent a fascinating intellectual challenge, training teaching, research and development personnel for whom there is greatest demand in academia and industry.
As a natural science, physics combines laboratory experiments with theoretical research where the main research tools are mathematics and the computer.
In the first years of study the bases of mathematics and physics, experimental and theoretical, are imparted. Later students are exposed to advanced subjects in modern physics.
The MSc studies, which usually last two years, consist of compulsory courses, elective courses and a final research thesis. The specialization is expressed through the composition of elective courses and the subject of the thesis.
MSc students are integrated into the advanced research groups of the Institute of Physics.
Outstanding students are invited at the end of the first year and during the second year of MSc studies to join the direct PhD track.

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.
