Msc stands for Master of Science. It is a postgraduate educational master's degree given by universities in a wide number of nations. The degree is typically studied for in the sciences and occasionally in the social sciences.
Chemistry is often referred to as the central science because it seems to unify the other branches of natural science together, including biology, geology, and physics. Many believe the origins of chemistry to be traced back several thousands of years, to the practice of alchemy.

In the two-year track Analytical Sciences of the Master’s programme Chemistry, a joint degree programme with Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, you will focus purely on aspects of analytical chemistry, such as modern analytical techniques, general concepts and strategies for analysis and various application fields.
Analytical chemistry plays a crucial role in many areas of science and society. Chemical compounds in a variety of materials and environments must be identified and quantified for, for example:
the development of new pharmaceuticals
the unravelling of complex biological systems
the design of new sustainable materials and chemical processes
Analytical chemistry provides the methods and techniques that make this possible. Its impact is not restricted to chemistry alone: progress in medicine, biology, environmental and material sciences is strongly dependent on the availability of new analytical tools as well....

Chemistry is the central science enabling a healthy future in a sustainable society. You will learn to take a fundamental approach in finding tailored solutions for complex societal problems.
What does this master’s programme entail?
The aim of this two-year programme is to train you as an independent scientist and to develop the necessary skills and proficiency to advance your career. The master's programme in Chemistry offers you access to cutting edge research.
The research is concentrated in two major research areas:
Chemical Biology: within this research area you will study fundamental biological and biomedical problems to understand physiological processes at the molecular level and to gather more knowledge on human health and illnesses.
Energy & Sustainability: within this research area you will focus on the development of new sources of sustainable energy and the use of storage of energy. For example, you will be working on the development of a new generation of catalysts for the production of solar fuels.
The Top Master Programme in Nanoscience has been reviewed as excellent in all aspects (Dutch Ministry of Education) and is embedded in a world top-10 research institute.
Nanoscience is the study of the fundamental and functional properties of matter on the nanoscale (~10-9m). The challenge for scientists is to understand the fascinating world of small length scales.
The properties of matter on the nanoscale often differ completely from macroscopic properties. Nature has made good use of nanoscale phenomena. How can scientists understand and exploit the new technological possibilities it offers?
