Masters in theoretical physics

The CRST offers two masters courses in Theoretical Physics.

More information and instructions on how to apply can be found at these links:


CRST members Sanjaye Ramgoolam, Matthew Buican, David Vegh, and Ricardo Monteiro discuss their research and how it relates to the taught modules and projects offered on our Theory MSc course. The director of the program, Rodolfo Russo, gives a general introduction to the program as well.

Our Theory MSc teaches the pillars of modern theoretical physics through four exciting taught modules on quantum field theory and a variety of excellent modules on the topics of string theory, general relativity, cosmology, and differential geometry.

We also offer MSc projects on a fantastically wide variety of topics at the forefront of theoretical physics.
