Since January 1, 2023, a reorganization of the Former Department of Astronomy and Theoretical Physics occured, and it involved the division of Theoretical Particle Physics joining Particle Physics.
This website is being replaced by https://particle-nuclear.lu.se which is now the new homepage of the division.
Please visit https://particle-nuclear.lu.se for the latest news.
Lund University's Department of Physics runs a dedicated Particle Physics Master's program that has a selection of courses and includes a project of choice, jointly lasting for 4-5 study terms and leading to a degree of Master of Science in Physics.
It should be noted that all the master projects can be adjusted to fit an either a 6 months project with 30 credit points or 12 months with 60 credit points.
Modern particle physics relies on the analysis of millions of events, hence it puts large demands not only on knowledge of underlying physics, but also on the use of computational methods of data analysis.
