Master's Degree Programs

The Abbe School of Photonics (ASP) provides and coordinates the graduate studies in optics and photonics within two Master's degree programs, namely the M.Sc. Photonics and the M.Sc. Physics with focus on photonics. Both courses of study are based on the long-standing teaching tradition provided by the Faculty of Physics and Astronomy at the Friedrich Schiller University Jena. Moreover, there is the new Master's degree course M. Sc. Medical Photonics at the interface between medicine and optics/photonics offered by the Faculty of Medicine. Students enrolled in either of the two-year programs are trained for scientific and technical leading positions in industry and academia.
