About of the program:

The undergraduate program in Physics of the Faculty of Natural Sciences and Medicine was developed in 2011 and is updated every academic year.

Natural science is an interdisciplinary course that aims to prepare a specialist in the field of physics with general knowledge of the basics of physics and the basic mathematical aspects of natural science as well as extensive knowledge in one of the areas of physics - fundamental physics, astronomy, biophysics or applied physics.

Aim of the program

The aim of the program is to give the student a broad theoretical knowledge in classical and modern physics, to study the laws of physics to which the universe obeys. Therefore, the structure of the universe and the processes that take place in it - from the microcosm to the galaxy - general properties, forms of existence and motion, general and basic patterns of natural phenomena.

Within the program, the student studies the basics of classical mechanics, electromagnetism, atomic and nuclear physics and astronomy. The student understands the most widely used analytical and numerical methods, has mastered the basic experimental methods of mathematics, computer calculations, modeling and physics, which are essential for career development in this field.

In addition, the program focuses on the development of transfer skills such as effective oral and written communication in Georgian and English, quantitative reasoning and critical thinking skills, the ability to work effectively in a team using modern information technologies and academic work skills.

Main areas of study
