The cross-border master study program in cooperation with the Johannes Kepler University in Linz advances on the knowledge of the bachelor curriculum of Biological Chemistry but is also open to students from other universities and related programs. It evolves the unique synthesis of chemical and biological education and background with special emphasis to interdisciplinary and working research and development skills.
Program mission The success in the area of biological research and biotechnologies today depends on applying an ideal approach and a deep knowledge of both chemical and biological disciplines. The proposed study program aims at training laboratory executives to become familiar with this new requirements in order to assure their professional future.
The expansion of the European Union and the ever-increasing adoption of European dimensions in research and technologies makes it a precondition for a successful professional career as well as for meeting the challenges of the European Union. Having built on a solid tradition of quality in biological disciplines, Faculty of Biological Sciences (University of South Bohemia) would like to take a step further and offer in cooperation with the Johannes Kepler University in Linz (Austria), the new study program of biological chemistry. Just as the region is changing in response to the economic and cultural needs of an increasingly globalised society, so, too, is Faculty of Biological Sciences (USB) facing this challenge by expanding a range of study programs.
The primary goal of the proposed study program is to provide state-of-the art education that encompasses molecular and cellular biology, biochemistry and biophysics. The program represents an alternative extension of the modern molecular, cellular and structural biology towards biochemistry, bio-organic chemistry and biophysics.
