The aim of the course is to study some of the most remarkable and far-reaching phenomena in condensed matter physics, the basis of which were laid down in the course Solid State Physics in the bachelor program and in the master course Solid State Physics II. Among the topics covered are electron-electron interaction in metals, introduction to magnetism, superconductivity and optical properties of solids.
To study on a distance education will give you different opportunities than on-campus teaching. It means that, to a large extent, you will be able to plan your studies yourself, both in terms of time and place.
However, keep in mind that most distance education includes a number of compulsory digital lectures and digital seminars during the weekdays. Some distance education also include compulsory get-togethers, for which you will have to travel to Växjö or Kalmar.
There are a number of different ways to be a distance student, the common denominator being that a large part of your study work is carried out on the web. You communicate with the teacher and your fellow students using a learning platform with discussion forums, group work, recorded lectures or video meetings using a web cam.
