Compare 5 Master of Science Programs in Professional Life Sciences

An advanced degree dating back to the Middle Ages, a master’s degree demonstrates a greater understanding of a subject. It is typically awarded after a bachelor’s degree, following one to two years of postgraduate study.

What is an MSc in Professional Life Sciences? The life sciences refer to the many disciplines that revolve around the study of living things. This contrasts with the physical sciences that mainly study non-living elements of nature. Biology is the main life science, along with neuroscience, zoology, ecology, protein science, and several others. Even some physical sciences have life science branches, such as biochemistry and biophysics. The professional designation generally refers to sciences that are used in various manufacturing industries.

An MSc in an analytical science generally develops strong research skills. Being able to research effectively allows you to hunt down information you need quickly. A Master in Professional Life Sciences also teaches you writing skills and laboratory procedures necessary in both research and industrial jobs.

A university’s financial department is your best source for the exact cost of a master’s degree. This may also change depending on the type of study you pursue. You can typically find a financial plan to match your current situation.

Upon graduation, you can generally find work in jobs related to the food industry. Industries related to the production of cultured products such as bread, beer, and dairy need nutrition and food safety experts. Publicly and privately funded laboratories employ research scientists to study protein development, bioinformatics, and molecular matter, among other subjects. Working as a professor or continued education are also options typically available after you complete your degree.

It’s generally possible to find a program where a reliable internet connection is all you need to advance your education. This allows you to study from your home and proceed at your own pace.

The cell is the building block of life, the smallest unit with the molecular characteristics of living systems. Increased knowledge of the mechanisms of the biomolecular and biochemical processes in the cell can lead to better medicines, new methods for combating diseases.

What does this master’s program entail?

The basis of the two-year master's programme in Life Science and Technology is formed by research carried out in the life sciences and chemistry groups of the Leiden Institute of Chemistry (LIC). Researchers take a science-based approach in finding tailored solutions for complex societal problems as encountered in personalized medicine, systems biology and sustainable use of biological sources. Starting from day one, and during the whole master programme you are a member of a research team in the LIC. Guided by a personal mentor, the student assembles a tailor-made educational programme for optimal training to become a life sciences professional.... [-]
