The Chemistry programme at Lund University provides you with the opportunity to acquire an advanced level of theoretical and practical knowledge and skills in various specialisations within the field of chemistry.

About

Through a choice of advanced courses and a Master`s degree project or projects, you are given the opportunity to specialise in one of chemistry s subject areas (analytical chemistry, organic chemistry, inorganic chemistry, biochemistry, molecular biophysics, physical chemistry, chemical physics and theoretical chemistry), which are represented at the Faculty of Science through KILU (the Department of Chemistry at Lund University). The Master`s degree project must correspond to at least 30 ECTS credits.

Studies build on a previous grounding in chemistry and enable you to develop the ability to apply independent ideas to issues and problems in chemistry or its neighbouring fields.

Career prospects

The programme will provide you with general and subject-related skills that equip you for employment in the chemical industry, related industries or the public sector, or for PhD studies. You will also develop your own learning skills in such a way that you are prepared for lifelong learning.
