About

Find out more information about Chemistry

Chemistry is the science that covers composition, properties, structure and reactions of molecules, atoms and systems that include the two. Chemistry originated from the medieval art of alchemy, which sought to create gold through various transformations of materials. However, these experiments resulted in other scientific discoveries that created the basis for modern chemistry.

Chemistry is strongly connected to physics, but it differs because chemical analysis is made at an atomic level and substances change their structure, shape or state. All this study is done with the purpose of understanding the origin of the substance. Chemistry is divided into materials science, quantum, organic, and inorganic chemistry. Students who earn a Master degree in Chemistry (Master of Science) can specialize in kinetics, combinatorial chemistry, cluster chemistry, photochemistry, theoretical chemistry and more.

Pursuing a Master’s degree in Chemistry leads to careers in research and science in disciplines such as chemical engineering, pharmaceutics, or the public sector. Some of the highest paid career prospects are as analytical chemists, engineers, healthcare scientists, toxicologists or research scientists.

M.Sc. Geochemistry and Geobiology

The Geochemistry and Geobiology study from University of Bergen includes different topics within the interactions between magmatic, metamorphic, hydrothermal, geochemical and biological processes in modern and ancient geological time, biological and (bio)geochemical processes in marine sediments, sedimentary provenance, and weathering reactions and aquatic geochemistry.

Norway
M.Sc. Chemical Oceanography

The Master programme in Meteorology and Oceanography with study specialization in Chemical Oceanography offered by University of Bergen gives the student a deep understanding of the distribution of the chemical components of the ocean, the cycling of key components, which chemical/biological/geological processes influencing the cycling, and how the cycles are coupled to climate and climate changes.

Norway
Master Chemistry

The Master in Chemistry at Aalborg University teaches students how to use chemical methods to develop food products, drugs, cosmetics or construction materials. The Master’s programme helps you find solutions to problems in chemical engineering by specialising in areas like inorganic materials, controlled release, functional polymers, or biosolid separation.
