Natural Sciences

A masters is awarded to students who have completed postgraduate level study in a specific field of study or area of professional practice while demonstrating a high level of mastery during the process.

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.

Sweden (Sverige) is the largest of the Nordic countries, with a population of about 9.5 million. It borders Norway and Finland and is connected to Denmark via the bridge of Öresund (Öresundsbron). Sweden has a strong tradition of being an open, yet discreet country.
