With a Master's degree in Physics you are attractive in the labour market, both in the public and private sectors, in areas connected to research, consultancy, engineering, and education.
During the Master's Programme in physics you develop working methods that are useful in a broad range of jobs, and employers value physicists due to their comprehensiveness and ability to approach various problems analytically and systematically.
To some extent your specialization determines which part of the labour market that is most relevant. In general the programme provides a solid foundation for further research. The technological industry offers numerous jobs that require experimental and computer simulation competence.
An alternative is to supplement the MSc degree in Physics with practical pedagogic education; hence you will qualify for teaching in upper secondary school (videregående skole).
Do you have passion for research?
If you want profound knowledge within one field of interest, maybe a PhD is something for you?
Paid education: With a degree in MSc in Biology you can choose among the different PhD programmes offered by the Faculty of natural sciences and technology.
The PhD programmes educate independent scientists on an international level in cooperation with both national and international research environments.
