There is worldwide consensus that a linear e+e- collider with an energy of at least 500 GeV, covering up to about 1 TeV, will be the ideal machine to complement the LHC. These lectures will expand on the physics program of such a collider. An overview will be given of the different projects proposed. The physics program of such a facility will be discussed in detail, in particular Higgs physics, supersymmetry, extra dimensions, and strong electro-weak symmetry breaking scenarios.
