Those who want to advance their career in the science realm may want to consider a Master of Science, or MSc. This postgraduate degree opens up a lot of possibilities for those who want to work in research or the pharmaceutical field.

What is an MSc in Biochemistry?  A master’s degree in the field of Biochemistry furthers the study of chemical processes that relate to living organisms, and is a diverse and fascinating discipline. Studies consist of learning more about the chemical reactions and combinations that take place in the body for metabolism, growth, heredity, production, and more. You will also further your education in relation to the functions of fats, enzymes, carbohydrates, proteins, and the molecular basis of genes. During your studies, you will work with living organisms such as yeasts, bacteria, plants, and cell cultures. You will plan and perform experiments, as well as learn how to interpret their results, which will help prepare you for the modern science laboratory.

Working towards a Master’s Degree in Biochemistry will not only expand your scientific understanding and terminology, but it will also help you in other areas. You will develop problem solving skills, analytical thinking, and be able to handle vast amounts of complex information. These skills will help you gain employment in a variety of career fields.

An MSc in Biochemistry takes around two years to complete, and costs can vary depending on the school. Researching the different institutions and programs is important in making sure the program is the right one for the student.

There are many career options for those with a Master’s Degree in Biochemistry. The medical field is one option, with opportunities in hospitals, research institutes, laboratories, and the pharmaceutical industry. If you enjoy teaching, there are many prospects for biochemists at all education levels. There are also careers in the environment and agriculture fields, with employers including the local government, seed companies, and the water authorities.

Online programs are great for those who need flexibility, or for those who may not live near a university. There are many institutions around the world that offer online classes.

The technological and scientific advances move the boundaries for what is academically possible. Human DNA – the 3 billion building blocks of life – are now known and will come to revolutionize molecular bioscience. The next challenge will be to map out the function of genes. The Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology has accepted this challenge and is among the frontrunners worldwide in the new research area of proteome analysis which is used to map proteins in humans and other organisms. -
