Master of Science in Biological Chemistry

Do you want to work in the forefront of organelle biology, environmental adaptation of plants and microorganisms, cancer research and computational biology? As student at the University of Stavanger, you will become a part of research groups targeting these fields.
MSc in Biological Chemistry - a student in the laboratory

During the first year of this programme the students attend classes in biophysical chemistry, bioinformatics, and practical courses in molecular biology. Optional subjects are chosen from courses in environmental science, food science, chemistry, or computational biology. The teaching often takes place in small groups where a professional dialogue is emphasized.

A substantial feature of this Master's programme is a nine month research project (thesis), where the students have the opportunity to perform their MSc project in one of the labs at the Center for Organelle Research (CORE), collaborators in the public sector or in a lab in the private industry sector.

By the end of the programme the students will have acquired practical and theoretical skills in molecular biology, biophysical chemistry and practical bioinformatics. They will also have experience in various analytical techniques and research methods, and get training in the presentation of scientific results.

Student exchange

During the study period there are possibilities for international student exchanges at one of our partner universities.
