Courses & Modules

Modules are listed under each course below. The structure for a given year in each course can be viewed by clicking on the year below.

Physical Sciences (TR063)

In the Junior Freshman year, students take two 10 credit core modules in Physics and two 10 credit core modules in mathematics plus two 10 credit Open modules in other subjects. In the Senior freshman year students take two 10 credit core modules in physics, and three 5 credit core modules in mathematics and a 5 credit core module in the history, philosophy and ethics of science, as well as open modules in other subjects totalling 10 credits in each semester.

Progression to one of three Moderatorships

Students choose to enter into one of three Moderatorships in Physical Sciences during their Senior Freshman year. The three Moderatorships or degrees are PhysicsPhysics and Astrophysics or Nanoscience.

Physics (TR063)

In the third and fourth (Sophister) years students take a variety of core Physics courses, a choice of Open specialist Physics courses, Trinity Elective modules, as well as conducting a final year Capstone Research project. This is the broadest of our degrees with the greatest choice.

Physics & Astrophysics (TR063)

In the third and fourth (Sophister) years students take a variety of core Physics courses and specialist Astrophysics courses , a choice of Open specialist Physics courses, Trinity Elective modules, as well as conducting a final year Capstone Research project in Physics or in Astrophysics.

Nanoscience (TR063)

In the third and fourth (Sophister) years students take a variety of core Physics and core Chemistry courses and specialist Nanoscience courses, there is a choice of Open specialist Physics and Chemistry courses, Trinity Elective modules, as well as conducting a final year Capstone Research project in a Nanoscience topic. The Nanoscience Moderatorship is jointly taught by the Schools of Physics and of Chemistry and is also open to suitably qualified students from the Chemical Sciences (TR061) entry. The Nanoscience Moderatorship continues on from the previous Nanoscience, Physics & Chemistry of Advanced Materials Moderatorship.

Theoretical Physics (TR035)
