Physics is the Science that studies phenomena in Nature by the direct measurement of observable quantities, with the aim of explaining and interpreting the relations among them. The search for more and more advanced instruments and methods of investigation in Physics gives rise to important technological and theoretical developments and to precious synergies between Physics and other scientific fields.
Physics represents an independent discipline and, together with Mathematics, it provides a fundamental reference frame for other scientific disciplines as, for example, Chemistry, Biology, Material Science, Geology, Computer Science, Economy, Environmental Science and Medicine.
Department of Physics offers three courses managed by the School of Science.
The School of Science was founded October 1st 2012. The strong development in technology requires highly qualified professionals who have thorough understanding of scientific tools as well as of their practical applications. We offer courses with a large number of practical and professional activities.
The Bachelor of Science Degree in Physics is based on a syllabus ranging from classical to modern physics. It initially addresses the general methods for the scientific investigation of nature, with both classroom lessons and measurement and calculus laboratories. Students are then offered the opportunity to deepen their knowledge by focusing on some of the most interesting areas of current research: Theoretical Physics, Elementary Particle Physics, Astrophysics, Biophysics, Plasma Physics, Electronics and Applied Physics.

The Master in Physics is divided into three curricula: Theoretical Physics, Particle and Applied Physics, Physics of the Matter. The student can choose a sub-curriculum related to the research activities of the Department: Theoretical Physics, Elementary Particle Physics, Astrophysics, Biophysics and Medical Physics, Plasma Physics, Solide State Physics, Electronics and Environmental Physics. The master thesis concerns arguments of fundamental or applied physics and takes place at the Physics Department, or at other Departments of the University possibly in collaborations with national and international Research Centers and Institutions and high tecnology industries.

The Master in Astrophysics and Space Physics develops the knowledges obtained in the Bachelor degree and apply them to the study of the Universe. The Master is divided into two main subjects, one related to Astrophysics and Cosmology, the other to the near Extraterrestrial Space. The thesis preparation takes place at the Research Group of the Department, in national Research Centers, like INAF (Istituto Nazionale di Astrofisica), CNR (Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche), INFN (Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare), PNRA (Programma Nazionale per le Ricerche in Antartide), ASI (Agenzia Spaziale Italiana) and at high tecnology industry of the area.
