Curriculum

Your curriculum lists the lectures, seminars, and lab courses required to complete your studies. It also includes a recommendation of the department on which courses should be completed each semester.  

During your bachelor's programme in physics, you can select one of two options, either the mathematical or the applied orientation, which differ in their emphasis on minors and mathematics in the first four semesters.

Applied orientation:

Mathematics 1 to 3 (each 4 SWS lectures, 2 SWS tutorial, 8 credits) in semesters one through three
Up to three minor subjects (at least 8 credits each) with 28 credits in total

Mathematical Orientation

Analysis 1 and Linear Algebra 1 (each 4 SWS lectures, 2 SWS tutorial, 9 credits in semester one
Analysis 2 (4 SWS lectures, 2 SWS tutorial, 9 credits) in semester two
Analysis 3 (2 SWS lectures, 1 SWS tutorial, 4 credits) in semester three
Mathematical elective subject (2 SWS lectures, 1 SWS tutorial, 5 credits) in semester four
Up to two minor subjects (at least 8 credits each) with 16 credits in total
