Natural Sciences

Master of Science (MSc): These programs are postgraduate studies for people who have recently finished their undergraduate studies and want to improve their knowledge on a profound and more scientific level.

The natural sciences deal with the understanding of natural phenomena through observations and predictions. The scientific method and the laws of nature may be covered. Natural science branches include areas such as physics and biology, and there are many more.

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.
