Modules MSc Molecular Science

The Master’s degree program consists of separate modules. It includes…

  • one mandatory module for 30 credit points, either
    • Molecular Nanoscience, or
    • Drug Discovery
  • one mandatory elective module for 15 credit points, and
  • one elective module for 15 credit points

Three small modules (10 credit points each)…

  • Scientific Methods
  • Current Aspects
  • Repetition and Rehearsal

…help students to prepare for the final exams in the main modules as well as for the Master’s thesis, which is worth 30 credit points.

Together, all modules add up to 120 credit points.

One of six subjects must be chosen for the mandatory elective module (MSM-ME).

The elective module (MSM-E) can be chosen either from the list of mandatory elective modules, or from any courses offered by the Department of Chemistry and Pharmacy. One-third of your elective courses may be for key qualifications, such as intercultural communication, project management, presentation techniques, or even ethics for chemistry and molecular science.

The selection of modules must be done at the beginning of your studies and registered via StudON.

The Master’s thesis finalizes the scientific education of the Master’s degree program. Students should take this opportunity to prove their abilities in independently solving a specific scientific problem under the guidance of an experienced supervisor.
