The M1 Soft Matter and Biophysics is accessible to student having a background in physics, physico-chemistry, or engineering, including mechanical and chemical engineering.
The core courses provide the theoretical, numerical and experimental background to pursue a 2nd year (M2) in 
Soft Nanosciences
The curriculum contains a significant amount of electives, allowing students to broaden their formation in biology and biophysics, or in physico-chemistry and engineering, depending on the M2 program they head for.

The M1 Soft Matter & Biophysics can be followed through the UGA Graduate School Programm in Soft Nanosciences. In this case students follow the Research Methodology course in the 1st semester and take only 6 credits of elective courses. In the second semester they take the Graduate School Soft-Nano internship and do not take electives.
