The Master’s degree course in biochemistry at the Goethe Universität Frankfurt is based on a long-standing tradition in biomolecular research and education. The course aims at providing scientific knowledge and occupational skills to candidates that they may become independent researchers.
The Master’s programme includes Cellular Biochemistry, Structural Biology and Biophysics/Biophysical Chemistry and allows setting focal points depending on the student's interests. Training is arranged in close cooperation with the local research environment and includes the departments of Physics, Molecular Biology, Medicine, Max-Planck-Institute for Biophysics, Paul-Ehrlich-Institute and Georg-Speyer-Haus. The programme especially accommodates membrane proteins and structural biology, areas in which Frankfurt has a strong research tradition. Graduates will be able to make decisions that are based on rational case analysis and reflect an established scientific tradition while keeping ethic and social conditions in mind. The Natural- and Life sciences are developing very fast. Therefore it is important that the students continue to educate themselves and to integrate new knowledge throughout their subsequent careers. Our graduates are qualified to continue with a PhD or to get a job in the industry, business management or in marketing, publishing companies or business consultancies.

You must have obtained at least a total of 20 CP in areas (1) and (2), while at least 5 CP is required for each subject.
- International applicants must submit a language certificate. This is in accordance with the university’s regulations on the German language exam for university entry, the Deutsche Sprachprüfung für den Hochschulzugang (DSH), for applicants with foreign university entrance qualifications in their respectively valid version, unless they are exempted from the German language examination under the DSH regulations.
