Course of study

Physics - Dual-Subject Bachelor's Programme

Within the scope of the Dual-subject Bachelor, you can take Physics

  • as a primary or secondary dual subject (60 ECTS) or
  • as a Minor (30 ECTS) combined with a Major

Physics can be studied either in connection with a non-teaching career goal or as a professional teaching qualification. If you want to become a teacher, you must follow the combinations of subjects for each teaching position.

Orientation and Goals

Physics spans a wide range of basics questions concerning everything from the consistency of matter and the laws of the cosmos to concrete applications in science and technology. Many discoveries in the area of physics have become basic realities of everyday life.

Physics is also an essential field in the public school system because of its significance for culture and society, as well as its contribution to promoting creativity and problem solving skills. Due to the significance of many discoveries in modern physics, there is a great demand for people who can present complex scientific information to a wider audience, especially in research centres and in the editing of magazines, etc. If you enjoy communicating and explaining the ideas, phenomena, knowledge and models that make up physics, then you should pursue the dual-subject bachelor's programme in Physics at the University of Oldenburg!

Foreign Language Skills

In order to study this course at the University of Oldenburg as a student from outside of Germany, you need an adequate knowledge of German.

German Language Proficiency
You can proof your German language proficiency with the following language certificates:
