About Mathematical and Theoretical Physics at University of Sheffield

This course has been created to equip graduates with advanced mathematical tools that can be used to explain the world around us. You'll have the freedom to choose from a selection of topics in applied mathematics, theoretical physics, statistics and data science. These modules are designed so that you can study the fundamental theories that govern the universe, and develop mathematical skills to explain and predict physical phenomena.

You'll spend around one-third of your time working on your own research project, under the supervision of an expert from the University of Sheffield's School of Mathematics and Statistics or Department of Physics and Astronomy. Possible topics include:

  • Cosmology, dark matter and dark energy
  • Magneto-hydrodynamics in the stellar atmosphere
  • Gravitational wave astronomy, black holes and neutron stars
  • Fluid mechanics and the Kolmogorov theory of turbulence
  • Chaos and fractal boundaries in dynamical systems
  • The search for dark matter at underground laboratories

The advanced topics covered and the extensive research training make this degree programme great preparation for a PhD. You'll develop numerical, problem solving and data analysis skills that are useful in many careers, such as computing, finance and data science.
