Master of Science in Molecular Biology

The Master program Molecular Biology introduces molecular biology research and includes twelve different specialist areas. With the Master thesis in the selected specialist area, the students demonstrate their ability to carry out their own research project and to present the results in written and oral forms according to scientific criteria.

The Master program Molecular Biology includes the Master thesis, the Master examination and an in-depth study course. The program generally lasts three semesters in full-time study and can be started in the fall or spring semester.
