A Master of Science or MSc is a postgraduate degree typically in the fields of sciences and social sciences. MSc may be course-based, research-based, or a mixture of the two.
In regards to the study of biological & life sciences, students may focus on one aspect of natural science or study how they work together, such as the environment and human health or biology and geology.

In the two-year track Biophysics and Biophotonics in the Master’s programme Physics and Astronomy, a joint degree with the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, you will use the language of physics to explore the secrets of life processes. This Master's track was formerly known as Physics of Life and Health.
Supported by the cutting-edge technologies available in our laboratories and by a series of theoretical classes delivered by our enthusiastic staff members, you can dive into the fascinating world of DNA unfolding, protein function, cell mechanics, tissue engineering, and organ function. You will learn about photonics and its use in the development of new imaging techniques; or you can choose to deepen your knowledge in the application of physics in the area of biomedical imaging and therapy, in close collaboration with the medical doctors of the two academic medical centres of Amsterdam. After this programme, you can continue an exciting career in an academic research institute, apply for a post-graduation training to become a clinical physicist, work in hospitals, schools, or the private sector....

The two-year track Green Life Sciences in the Biological Sciences Master’s programme is a research-oriented programme that focuses on studying plants and their interactions with the environment at the molecular level. The study programme gives you the opportunity to combine fundamental and applied training in molecular biology, chemical ecology, ecogenomics, biotechnology, plant breeding, phytopathology, pest control, cell and population biology. This enables you to develop an integrated view of the functioning of plants and to gain skills required for modern research.
Is Green Life Sciences at the UvA the study for you?
It is, if you:
are interested in how organisms function at a genetic, biochemical and cellular level and how this translates to their ecology, evolution and usage.
want to learn how plants cope with abiotic stress such as drought or high salt levels in the soil, which is an increasing problem in agriculture.
want to investigate how pathogens and plagues (insects, mites) affect the plants’ immune system.
want to study how outbreaks of pests can be predicted and circumvented, and how natural enemies can be used for pest control.
want to research the underlying mechanisms that lead to an enormous diversity of inflorescence and flower architectures in nature, which is in sharp contrast with the high conservation of gene and genome sequences.
are interested in the role of epigenetic mechanisms and chromatin structure in gene/genome regulation.
want to become an independent researcher by taking part in internships with internationally renowned scientists.

Both Bioinformatics and Systems Biology are strongly interdisciplinary fields. This Master's programme combines molecular and cell biology, computer science and mathematical modelling to integrate vast amounts of biological data into fundamental knowledge. You will develop a strong feel for scientific research and high levels of abstraction, and learn to combine the rapid developments in these fields.
Discovering the simplicity of life
Vast amounts of data have been collected through genomics initiatives. They provide a golden opportunity to research the secrets of life, to understand more of its complexities, to improve quality of life and to conquer major diseases. Converting this huge volume of data into real understanding is the basic challenge of Bioinformatics research. ...

The two-year track Molecular Sciences in the Chemistry Master’s programme, a joint degree programme with the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, covers areas in chemistry that traditionally are associated with organic and inorganic chemistry, catalysis, physical chemistry and theoretical chemistry.
Organic chemistry, biochemistry, and organometallic chemistry are the foundation for a fundamental understanding of the relationship between molecular structure and performance. This field supplies society with the molecules and materials we need for our health, transportation, energy, agriculture and communication. Understanding how molecules function is one of the most important worldwide challenges in chemistry...

This two-year master’s programme provides you with a thorough introduction to the general philosophy and methodology of statistical modelling, data analysis and data science.
What does this master’s programme entail?
The two-year master's programme in Statistical Science provides you with a thorough introduction to the general philosophy and methodology of statistical modelling and data analysis. The programme consists of a core programme shared by all students, and specialisation specific courses, electives, an internship or research project and master's thesis. You can specialise in either life and behavioural sciences, where the emphasis is on the application in multidisciplinary environments, or in data sciences where you focus more on data mining, pattern recognition and deep learning....

Solving global water problems requires a multidisciplinary approach to knowledge and skills. That is why the Wetsus Institute and three Dutch universities offer a joint degree in Water Technology.
The master Water Technology is a two-year programme offered jointly by Wageningen University, University Twente and the University of Groningen with all education being provided at Wetsus, European Centre of Excellence for sustainable water technology, in Leeuwarden.
In the field of water technology, breakthrough technological developments are required. Not only to enable the export ambitions of the water sector but also to solve global threats and challenges in society....

MSc Molecular Biology and Biotechnology
Do you want to unravel the fundamental processes in living cells? Do you want to understand ‘life’ at a molecular level? Do you want to explore applications based on basic molecular research? Biomolecular Sciences is an internationally oriented research and business area that strongly focuses on these topics, with emphasis on structural biology, biochemistry, molecular and cellular biology, microbiology, systems biology (incl. bioinformatics), and biotechnology (incl. synthetic biology).
The fundamental knowledge on 'life' at a molecular level drives several applied-oriented research projects in collaboration with major industrial partners and government support to provide biobased solutions for current societal challenges in the areas of Environment, Energy, Chemistry, Materials, Water, Agro/Food, and Health....

DNA and protein are the secret codes of the human body. Decipher the codes and you will get an insight into bodily processes. At Radboud University we offer a multidisciplinary Master’s programme in Molecular Life Sciences. Working at the interface of chemistry, biology and medical science, you will not only explore the basic principles of molecules and cells but also their role in health and disease. This combination of scientific topics translated into medical implications and solutions is unique in the Netherlands.
You are able to choose from specialisations within this programme:
Chemistry of Life
Science in Society
Science, Management and Innovation
This program is aimed at Life Sciences students who want to innovate services, products and production systems and are interested in bio inspired design and science.Bio i
Bio-inspired design and science are used for innovations that support a transition to a sustainable, circular economy. The Master’s program Bio Inspired Innovation (BII) offers a unique blend of knowledge and skill training that will support the search for and development of circular business-models and bio-inspired research & innovations.
Scientist at the Design Table
We live in a society that places great trust in technology and science to solve our problems and fulfill our needs. However, science and technology alone cannot provide us with a society that nourishes rather than destroys its surroundings. We need to switch to a more circular society. We will introduce you to the grand challenges that need to be tackled to become a circular society and to the Life’s Principles that are of use in the scoping and evaluation design phases of a biomimicry design cycle....
