Bachelor's programme

The bachelor's programme in physics, specializing in Astronomy and Astrophysics, is a three year programme resulting in a Bachelor of Science degree. The programme starts by giving you the physics and math tools you need to further your education, and as you specialize more and more the programme becomes flexible, giving you the opportunity to choose among the courses you are most interested in.


Programme details

This is the current recommended plan for the bachelor programs for astronomy students. Courses with a course code starting with AST, FYS or FYT are given by the Department of Physics, whereas courses with course codes starting with MAT or NUM are given by the Departments of Mathematics. Two 7.5 ECTS credit (hp) courses are usually taken in parallel during each study period. Some courses are 15 credits.
