Theoretical Physics addresses the meaning of everything by employing the language of mathematics to understand the universe. From quantum information and grand unified theories of particle physics, to dark matter and cosmology, this subject can take you anywhere.
Our three-year BSc Theoretical Physics degree will teach you how fundamental physics and mathematical techniques are applied to understand advances in quantum information, cosmology, semiconductors, lasers, nuclear & particle physics.
You will explore the big questions, such as how did the universe begin, what are space and time made of and is it possible to recreate in a laboratory the conditions that existed seconds after the big bang?
You will have the opportunity to work on advanced projects, under the supervision of internationally recognised theoretical physicists in Swansea.
