An MSc, or Master of Science, is an academic distinction bestowed upon those who effectively complete a predetermined set of coursework in what is often a science-based discipline. The MSc often enhances career opportunities as well as earning potential.
Biological & life sciences studies often prepare students for a career in healthcare. Sometimes programs will combine human biology classes with classes in physics, chemistry, and even geology to help students learn how living organisms work together.
Denmark, officially the Kingdom of Denmark, is a sovereign state in Northern Europe, located southwest of Sweden, south of Norway, and bordered to the south by Germany.

MSc in Biotechnology and Chemical Engineering
Developing the processes of the future
Developing and optimising chemical and biotechnological processes plays a key role in modern society. It is predicted that the industry of the future will be characterised by production that is environmentally correct and energy-efficient.
In the first year of the Biotechnology and Chemical Engineering programme, learning is mainly based on lectures and theoretical exercises. The second year mainly consists of project work, which involves students working closely with external companies. Students who are hungry for more have the possibility of continuing with a PhD. On this path, the student adds three extra years to their studies, working more independently on solving concrete problems. This can also take the form of an industrial PhD in collaboration with a company....

MSc in Organic Agriculture and Food Systems
Agrobiology double degree
The MSc programme in Organic Agriculture and Food Systems (EUR-Organic) is a unique degree combining high-ranking research environments with state-of-the-art knowledge from industry leaders in organic food production. It prepares students to develop the solutions of tomorrow, focusing on goals such as high crop yields, high animal welfare, and low environmental impact. Students also learn how agriculture systems and current methods of food production work. At Aarhus University organic agriculture is an integrated part of all courses, and therefore the programme for students specialising in organic agriculture also includes courses focused on farming in an organic setting....

MSc in Agrobiology
Food production in a challenging future
Developing solutions for healthy food production while decreasing environmental impact and increasing animal welfare is the main focus in the agrobiology programme at Aarhus University. Topics of study are genetics, biotechnology, production systems, and the interaction of agriculture with nature, among others. The programme is broadly science-based with a focus on applicability and problem-solving, and takes an integrative approach to learning about the biology behind food production.
Cross-sectional knowledge and approaches
The core of this programme is biology, with perspectives on sustainability, environmental impact, animal health and welfare, plant health, and product quality. Students can choose between specialisations including animal nutrition, plant nutrition, animal health and welfare, plant health, and pest management, or combine animal and plant sciences. Because this is a cross-disciplinary master’s, students can also choose courses from other academic programmes....

MSc in Agro-Environmental Management
Developing sustainable agroecosystems
Students in the Agro-Environmental Management programme are out to change the world. Rather than just making minor changes to existing production systems, these students are out to rethink the entire production cycle by optimising production goals as well as environmental targets. They seek to develop sustainable pathways for every level of food production, to use new technologies to comply with an increased regulation, and to eliminate waste from the entire production cycle. This approach is not about maximising production – it’s about balancing production with environmental concerns.
Courses provide a strong theoretical background in subjects such as the management of border systems and the workings of the nutrient cycle. In the second year, students will have the opportunity to apply this knowledge to their thesis project....
