The advanced programme in Chemistry is grouped into individual modules: three mandatory modules (Inorganic, Organic and Physical chemistry), one Mandatory elective and one Elective module as well as one Specialisation module. In the Mandatory elective module students can choose chemical subjects which reflect the fields of the chemistry research at FAU (theory, catalysis, bio(in)organic chemistry, interfaces or materials). In the Elective module students can choose courses according to their preferences. Modules including language, law or business studies courses are among the most popular.
This interdisciplinary programme Molecular Science offers specialisation in one of two fields: Molecular Life science with a focus on drug discovery and medicinal chemistry or Molecular Nano science with a focus on materials chemistry and devices. In addition to the Mandatory (specialisation) module, students can choose from a broad range of courses offered at the Departments of Chemistry and Pharmacy, Biology, and Materials Science (for both compulsory and optional elective modules).
In both programmes a six-month Master’s thesis (6 months) allows students to develop a deeper understanding of a specific scientific topic.
For Molecular Life science a study start is strongly recommended for the winter term to allow the students the best study options.
