| BA Bachelor of Arts – Mathematical Physics as a Single Major, Double Major, Major/Minor or Minor. Mathematical Physics and another subject to degree level. First year - 15 credits of Mathematical Physics
- Choose 2 or 3 other subjects (or Critical Skills) from the groups available – maximum 1 per group
Second & third year pathways include: - Double Major: Mathematical Physics and 1 of your first year subjects in second & third year
- Single Major option 1: Mathematical Physics with 1 of your first year subjects in second year and Mathematical Physics only in third year
- Single Major option 2: Mathematical Physics only in second and third year (60% required in first year Mathematical Physics to take this option)
- Optional 10 credit Electives in second year
Mathematical Physics is also available as a Major/Minor and as a Minor. Students may apply to study overseas after 2nd year (on Erasmus or Study Abroad) and graduate with a BA (International) after 4 years. See the International Studies website for details. Duration: 3 years (BA) or 4 years (BA International) Disclaimer The modules below are indicative of the content associated with this course of study. The modules are subject to change as the curriculum is revised and reviewed annually. Please check periodically for updates. | Year 1 | | Mathematical physics, or theoretical physics, is the study of the fundamental laws of nature that govern our existence; from the interactions of quarks and gluons through the properties of metals and the aerodynamics of flight, to the evolution of stars and galaxies. - Many of the technologies we now take for granted have their origins in fundamental physics research, including PET scanners, lasers, Wi-Fi and the world wide web.
- Theoretical physics challenges our deeply held notions of what the world is like, and has led to developments in thinking from philosophy to genetics and neuroscience.
- The study of Mathematical Physics at Maynooth University has a long and distinguished tradition, of over 200 years. Modern theoretical physics and applied mathematics are exciting and dynamic fields, and this excitement is reflected in the research projects which are pursued in the Department.
- As well as being introduced to the major ideas and developments in theoretical physics and applied mathematics, you will be equipped with the tools to meet current and future developments in science, engineering, finance and other technologies of the future.
- Maynooth offers the unique possibility of combining Mathematical Physics with subjects such as Music, Philosophy or Geography.
- 15 credit option only in 1st year.
- Only one of these can be taken as a double subject since the extra 15 credits for each are taught at the same time: Anthropology, Computer Science, German (beginner), History, International Development, Law, Sociology, Spanish (beginner).
