Master of Science
The Master's programme in Biochemistry at Heinrich Heine University builds on a previous successful bachelor's degree in biochemistry. The programme is research-oriented with a focus on the characterization and application of enzymes.
Admission is unrestricted, but requires a "proof of special suitability" (apply to examination board). A study start is possible in April (summer term) and October (winter term).
Good bachelor graduates with solid foundations in biochemistry, organic chemistry and physical chemistry are offered a research-oriented deepening. The focus is on the study of the structure and function of enzymes using modern molecular biological, biochemical and biophysical methods as well as their application in biotechnology.
The Master's program "Biochemistry" leads to the vocational qualification Master of Science (MSc) in 4 semesters. The first three semesters are divided equally between compulsory and electoral modules. The fourth semester is planned for the master's thesis.
More details and information can be found on the homepage of the programme.
Programme objectives/Career prospects
Graduates have the knowledge and ability to independently identify and solve complex problems at current interfaces of chemistry and biology. They are able to demonstrate their scientific qualifications in a doctorate and are suited for leading positions in medical-pharmaceutical research, biotechnology and the food industry, as well as at universities, research institutes or in public administration.
