EXPLORE (EXPeriential Learning Opportunity through Research and Exchange) is an innovative international teaching project that enables students to learn about physics hands-on while also experiencing modern international research collaborations. For one semester, Bachelor and Master students from Goethe University Frankfurt, York University in Toronto, Canada, the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Canada, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge, USA, and Case Western Reserve in Cleveland, USA, work together in self-organized teams to analyse real data. The highlight of the exchange is a one-week summer school and two-month research stays abroad.

M.Sc. Astrophysics

We are working on building an outstanding and internationally visible joint Master’s in “Relativistic Astrophysics” at the three Rhine-Main-Universities (RMU), Goethe University Frankfurt, Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz, and Technical University Darmstadt.

By combining our expertise in the areas of

  • Astronomy and Astrophysics
  • Particle Physics
  • Nuclear Physics
  • Gravitational Physics
  • Computational Physics

under the umbrella of the RMU alliance, and by collecting and integrating courses that are already given at these three universities, we strive to provide an innovative, captivating, and international training program for our students.

The MSc will be targeting outstanding students from German universities and abroad via specific calls, who will represent a new generation of scientists tackling some of the most challenging but also most fascinating questions in modern physics and astrophysics.
