Molecular biology provides tools and a basis of knowledge that are increasingly important in all aspects of life science. This Master’s programme offers courses that will deepen and broaden your education in modern molecularly-oriented biology and related topics. The general programme in Molecular Biology provides you with the opportunity to design your own education with the specialisation that you prefer. There is a broad range of courses to choose from. You will be given guidance on how to put together a suitable programme that fulfils the degree requirements and gives you the appropriate education and training.
Special features of the programme
Broad range of courses related to cell- and molecular biology/biochemistry, medical biology/biomedicine.
Close connection to research in an international environment.
Integration of theoretical analysis with strong training of laboratory skills.
Freedom to create your own study programme and specialisation.
Elective courses in Molecular Biology (60 credits)
Master’s degree project (30, 45 or 60 credits)
Optional courses or continuation of the Master’s degree project (0–30 credits)
Most courses are full-time studies, and you take only one course at a time. The courses are typically teaching-intensive with lectures, seminars, theoretical and practical exercises, as well as for self-studies. During one term, you normally take two courses of 15 credits (i.e. a total of 60 credits per year).
Example of course of study:
Neurobiology (15 credits)
Microbiology (15 credits)
Immunology (15 credits)
Molecular Biotechnology (15 credits)
Bioinformatics (7.5 credits)
Programming in Python (7.5 credits)
Start of Degree project (45 credits)
Continuation of Degree project (45 credits)
The knowledge and skills you will gain on this programme open doors to employment within different sectors in industry, academia and the public sector. The programme also provides you with a solid grounding for PhD studies.
