Bachelor Program in Physics (PSF) is a study program organized by the Department of Physics Faculty of Mathematic and Natural Science Universitas Gadjah Mada. PSF aims to prepare Bachelor (S1) who have faith and be devoted to God Almighty, have high integrity and personality, are open and responsive to changes, scientific progress and problems faced by society, especially those related to their fields of expertise, and have the quality and ability to compete in the international field.

Graduate Competencies

This study program prepares its students to become physicists who are skilled in understanding, observing, and predicting natural phenomena through theories, experiments, and applications. In their activities in relation to theories, experiments, and applications, a physicist utilizes the help of Mathematics and computational skills. As an empirical science, physics cannot be separated from the skills of conducting experiments. In addition, because physics studies very basic natural phenomena, it cannot be separated from philosophical thinking arranged and elaborated in mathematical language. Conducting various activities in the field of Physics will bring benefits to one’s personal development, such as, being able to build the ability to solve problems, to think logically and analytically, and to be independent.

Courses taught in this study program includes conceptual aspects relating to natural phenomena, devices to obtain information, measure, model and analyze phenomena theoretically, computationally, experimentally, and based on observations. The main branches and topics in physics include Classical Mechanics, Quantum Mechanics, Statistical Physics, Electrodynamics, Theory of Relativity, and Cosmology.

Our study program has a shared infrastructure in the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences, which includes classrooms, libraries and sports facilities. Most lecturers in our study programs have doctoral degrees with various fields of expertise that cater various fields of research interest. Our study program is supported by three laboratories to facilitate experiment training for students, namely the Fundamental of Physics Laboratory, Atomic and Core Physics Laboratory, and the Material and Instrumentation Physics Laboratory. For the purposes of advanced research, the study program has access rights to the Integrated Research and Testing Laboratory (LPPT).

Our graduates master the science and applied statistics, data analysis and processing, experimental design, database, computing, statistics and stochastic, and statistical quality control.

Career Prospects

Professional Physicists graduated from this study program have the capability to work as professionals that include the following.

  • Educators at any level, i.e. universities/colleges, senior high schools, junior high schools, and elementary schools
