Does physics include astronomy

Study physics and astronomy in Germany

Physics deals with the basic building blocks of the world around us, from the largest cosmic scales to the smallest distances that can just be resolved by particle accelerators. Its aim is to record states and processes in nature on the basis of theoretical considerations and experiments and to describe the observed phenomena using generally applicable, mathematically formulated laws. Physics examines the spatial structure, various interactions and the behavior of particles and systems over time. The research areas of physics include both strictly mathematical theoretical physics, which is primarily dedicated to modeling and theory formation, and experimental physics, which operates in the laboratory, which specializes in quantitative measurements of observed phenomena. Astronomy and astrophysics deal with the largest structures of all, namely galaxies, galixia clusters and the entire cosmos. Physics is the basis for many scientific and engineering disciplines.

You will find study opportunities that qualify you to become a teacher in physics in the "School Subjects" study area of ​​the teaching department. You will find study programs in physical technology in the field of physical engineering of the same name, those in medical physics in the field of technical health care, and study programs in biophysics in the field of study Biology, physical chemistry in chemistry, and geophysics in geosciences.

If you want to study physics, you should have in-depth knowledge of the school subjects of physics and mathematics. In addition, a good knowledge of computer science is helpful for the course and good to very good knowledge of English is important, as specialist literature is often only available in English.
