Program Description

Master of Science in Biophysics

Goethe University Frankfurt

The goal of the Master’s study course is deepening of knowledge and specialisation in the subject Biophysics. The courses are no longer strictly oriented within the classical subject boundaries and institute but are now more topic-oriented and are offered interdisciplinarily in five areas of focus:

  • Spectroscopy, imaging and structural analysis
  • Membranes, electrophysiology, bioenergetics and cell biophysics
  • Theory, simulations and molecular dynamics
  • Bio-analytical methods
  • Nucleic acids

These areas of focus reflect the areas of focus of research conducted by the university lecturers on campus who represent the biophysical subject areas and attractive and future-oriented fields of research. The necessary breadth of the education is achieved in that the student must select modules from all of the areas of focus as optional compulsory subjects.

The depth of the education is achieved in that the students are introduced to the Master’s thesis over a research and laboratory practical course as well as over a working group seminar and an “academic specialisation“ module in which the student delivers his own work on a current scientific problem.

Admission prerequisites

  • A Bachelor in Biophysics or in a closely related subject area (the examination committee will decide about fulfilment of the entrance requirements and the equivalence of the existing degree)
  • Letter of motivation

Applicants to become students with a foreign university entrance qualification and a foreign basic degree must also demonstrate that they have adequate knowledge of German according to the DSH regulations.

Provisional admission

In the case of admission on the basis of a closely related subject area, the examination committee can associate the admission with a requirement to deliver additional course performances and set time limits for these.
