Program description

Program description

Master's Degree in Astrophysics

The Canary Islands are known for their special atmospheric conditions which create the opportunity for top-quality astronomic observations. This along with the ULL Department of Astrophysics, multiple observatories, and large number of researchers and teachers make this an excellent location to get a Master in Astrophysics. 

The Master program has three areas of focus that are created based on rigid subject choices, itineraries and options. The three special areas are Material Structure, Theory and Computing Specialty, and Observation and Instrumentation.

Admission requirements

Suitable applicants include:

  • Graduates in Physics, but also in Mathematics and Engineering (including Information Technology) from Spanish universities who would like to complete their training with a Master in Astrophysics.
  • Active graduates who wish to improve their training or extend their professional profile (e.g.: secondary school teachers).
  • Graduates from Latin American and European universities (and from the rest of the world) who wish to study the entire Master or some practical credits based on co-operation programs with the ULL.
  • Graduates in Physics of any other experimental science, along with engineers and technical engineers.
