Specific characteristics of the Department of Physics at the WWU are an interdisciplinary orientation, the participation in various third-party programs and the initiation of important centers within the scope of research focuses.

Furthermore, with its 3100 students the Department of Physics at the WWU is one of the largest Physics Departments in Germany.

In the Winter semester 2013/14 alone, more than 1100 new students have begun their study courses in physics as main or minor subject.

The HIS-survey among students at the WWU led to an exceedingly positive result concerning study conditions in physics.

New Bachelor and Master programs

The Bachelor programs in physics, physics with specialisation “Scientific Instrumentation” and geophysics are completed with the Bachelor of Science (BSc).

The Master of Science (MSc) can be acquired in physics and from winter semester 2009/10 also in geophysics.

In physics a dual degree with the University of Sevilla (Licenciado en Física) is possible as well.

The formation of future teachers in the subjects physics and engineering is carried out in a pilot project of the WWU in tiered Bachelor / Master studies since winter semester 2005/06.
