The Department of Physics of the University
of Crete organises each year an one year intensive Master's Degree Program in "Advanced Physics".
The curriculum offered is a combination of advanced general physics courses, a number of
elective courses from a wide spectrum of modern physics reflecting the interests and activities in
the Department, and it is completed by an original research thesis project.
The experimental or theoretical Master's thesis project is to be carried out under
the supervision of a faculty member or researcher of the Department, in a modern cutting-edge research
area. The areas covered are Astrophysics and Space Physics, Atomic and Molecular Physics, Applied
Physics - Physics & Technology of Semiconductors, Nuclear & Elementary Particle Physics, and Condensed Matter Physics.
The state of the art facilities and expertise of the Institute of Electronic Structure and Laser at the Foundation for Research and Technology-Hellas (FORTH) and Skinakas Observatory are available for
carrying out the research project.
