Presentation
Simultaneous Degree of Mathematics and Physics
Pla d'estudis
The University of Barcelona, from the faculties of Mathematics and Physics, has organized, since the year 200910, a specific itinerary that allows studying the Degrees of Mathematics and Physics simultaneously.
Admission to this double degree is obtained, exclusively, by university preregistration. There are 20 seats.
 The basic features of this double itinerary are:
 Two degree titulations are obtained, with the respective minors:
 Physics Degree, with intensification in Fundamental Physics and Minor in Mathematics.
 Mathematics Degree, with Minor in Physics.
 Two degree titulations are obtained, with the respective minors:
 324 ECTS credits have to be obtained (much less than the 480 to obtain the two separate degrees).
 The total intended duration of the studies is 10 or 11 semesters (depending on the EndofDegree project date), much less than the 16 semesters studying both degrees separately.
 The double itinerary consists in a scheduling of the subjects of both studies. The faculty has setteled equivalence tables to even out subjects of each major.
 Every semester has to combine teaching of both majors. The Mathematics subjects are taught in the morning; and the Physics’, in the afternoon.
 A double itinerary student is, in fact, student of both faculties, and has to handle every administrative matter in the corresponding center.
After 3 years of experience, it has been decided to make some changes in this double itinerary, as well as in the recognition tables associated to it. Then,
 There’s a double itinerary (and recognitions) for the students who started the years 200910, 20101, or 201112.
 There another double itinerary (and other recognitions) for the students starting from the year 201213 or later.
