### Introduction

This Master’s Degree Program is open to all students with a Bachelor’s Degree in Physics and to graduates in other scientific subjects (such as Mathematics or Engineering) who wish to deepen their knowledge of fundamental or applied physics.

It aims at completing the elements acquired during the Bachelor’s course in the different areas (applied and experimental physics, fundamental and theoretical physics, microphysics) and at bringing students into contact with the different research fields.

A Master’s Degree in Physics may lead to employment in research laboratories at research centers or in high-tech companies, to entrance into finance or insurance companies, to a career as a teacher in high school; it is also the first step on a scientific career that includes a Ph.D. in Physics in Italy or abroad or a specialization in medical physics.

Three different curricula are offered: Data Science for Astrophysics, General Physics, and Medical and Experimental Physics.

The General Physics curriculum offers a choice of courses ranging from Matter Physics to Nuclear and Particle Physics, from Theoretical Physics to Optics.

### Admissions

### Scholarships and Funding

This opportunity is available to particularly deserving students enrolled in the first year of Bachelor and Master Programs.

These scholarships are granted upon participation in a specific competition. Two specific calls are published every year, one for students enrolled in the first year of Bachelor and single cycle Master programs and one for students enrolled in the first year of Master programs.

For all details concerning the amounts, the requirements, and the application procedures, please consult the Competition Notice.

Selections are normally open between July and September every year for Bachelor students and between January and March every year for Master students.
