Physics with Particle Physics and Cosmology MPhys Hons

Lancaster’s particle physicists work with state-of-the-art particle accelerators to investigate and identify the nature of space and time. Our resident cosmologists employ all of their creative and mathematical abilities to explain the early history of the universe in a way that complements and supports observational and experimental data. All this expertise is translated into an exciting, modern physics course based on the foundation of our core physics programme.

Throughout your MPhys degree you will take a range of subjects including Quantum Physics and Electromagnetism in the first year, as well as Astronomy, Detection of Particles and Introductory Cosmology in the second year. In your third year, your modules include Big Bang Cosmology, Flavour Physics and Particle Physics laboratory studies.

In your final year you will study subjects such as Current Cosmology and Gauge Theory. You can also carry out your extended investigative project using experimental data from the Large Hadron Collider at CERN or the T2K neutrino experiment in Japan. Recent project topics include axions and hidden sector photons, W bosons, CP violation using B mesons, the Higgs particle, ATLAS silicon sensors, quarkonium, neutrino oscillations, neutrino interaction measurements, neutrinoless double beta decay and cosmic inflation.
