Particle Physics - Courses

The following are mandatory courses for students in the Department, in addition to courses mandated by the School of Physics & Astronomy. Students whose main area of research is particle-physics theory are strongly encouraged to take Field Theory 1 and 2 in their first year. 

  • Field Theory 1 (1st year, fall semester)

  • Particle Physics 1 (1st year, spring semester) 

  • Field Theory 2  (1st year, spring semester. This course is mandatory only for students focusing on theory research, but is often taken by experimentalists in later years)

  • Particle Physics 2 (2nd year, fall semester)


In addition, the following courses are offered, not necessarily every year:

  • Advanced Topics in Physics Beyond the Standard Model

  • Supersymmetry and Supergravity

  • String Theory

  • Advanced String Theory

  • Selected Topics: Physics at the LHC

  • Experimental Methods in Particle Physics

  • Selected Topics in Field Theory

  • Paradoxes in Quantum Mechanics

  • Quantum Information

Check the course database to see what courses are currently being given.


In addition to these courses, students are expected to attend the department seminar on a regular basis, and to give a talk at the seminar, usually providing a summary of their MSc research. Please see the upcoming seminar schedule. The current seminar organizer is Prof. Nissan Itzhaki.
