What you study in Condensed matter physics

    Hello! Could someone tell me what they are studying in the first three years (undergradute) in condensed matter physics.

    In general, one does not specialize until graduate school.

    Ok so what they are studying in the first three years before graduate school?

    Physics before about 1930. You can get a detailed list by visiting the web site of most universities.

    I think the crucial point that Vanadium implied but did not explicitly state is that usually there is little to no specialization before grad school. That is, you study physics. Not condensed mater physics, particle physics, biophysics, atomic physics, optics or the forum-notorious "theoretical physics". There may be a few exceptions, though. So it might help if you could clarify why you are asking about an undergrad program for condensed matter physics.

    I'm allready studying physics of condensed matter, but I want to know if there are some missing modules that we didn't study or something like that.
