A Master of Science represents one of the highest levels of study in a field, with a doctorate generally the only degree higher. Depending on the institution, a master’s degree may qualify you for teaching.

What is an MSc in Microbiology? While biology is the study of living beings as a whole, microbiology is concentrated on microscopic organisms. Bacteria, fungi, protists, and, in some cases, viruses are part of the organisms studied. This field also examines nucleic acid in the form of DNA or RNA sequences and mainly observes cultured microorganisms. Some programs may allow specializations in your degree such as industrial, environmental, or medical microbiology.

You can typically expect to develop your skills as a researcher in a Master of Science program. This ability can assist you on the job and in finding information in everyday life. Academic writing and laboratory skills are improved as well.

The cost of a program is an area of concern for many prospective students, but there are generally affordable options available. Because the exact price may vary significantly from university to university, it is best to contact your institution’s financial department directly.

Microbiology is a field that scientists are just beginning to understand because less than 1 percent of microbes are easily cultivated in lab settings. Immunologists, food technologists, and pharmacologists often use their microbiology degrees to advance their industries. If you are interested in laboratory work, there are typically many research scientist positions available to graduates. Businesses as varied as beer breweries and cancer prevention centers involve the management of microorganisms.

If you are interested in studying for your Master in Microbiology, you can typically find an education option that fits your situation. Most courses of study have both a part-time and full-time schedule available online for prospective students. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.

This programme provides a highly competitive education in modern microbiology. It offers a broad foundation of knowledge and important skills in microbiology and molecular biology. Knowledge about microbes and their diversity, physiology and genetics, as well as modern tools to study them, are important and highly relevant for work or research in molecular biology, infectious diseases and ecology, for the exploration of microbes, i.e. to produce bulk and fine products, food and pharmaceuticals, and for use in environmental biotechnology. The programme provides a point of entry into many areas, such as postgraduate academic research or a career in industry or the public sector. -
