Molecular life sciences aims to understand the structure, function and regulation of biological systems at molecular, cell and organism levels. The subject is broad and many different fields interact. Molecular life sciences is characterised by very rapidly growing need to gather knowledge, extensive technological advances, and the establishment of new subdisciplines. This means that our understanding of living organisms is rapidly increasing, and that we in this way can obtain powerful new tools for applications in biotechnology and biopharmacology.
A Masters degree in Molecular Life Sciences opens a broad spectrum of career opportunities both within and outside of the academic sphere. Important parts of industry and society require deep knowledge within molecular life sciences, from biomedical research and pharmaceuticals development to the effect of the environment on biological systems, quality assurance of foodstuffs, and nutritional science. This programme is also, naturally, highly appropriate for students who plan to carry out research in the exciting field of molecular life sciences.
This Masters programme offers a broad education at the front line of research in molecular life sciences. The programme is highly flexible and can be tailored for a number of directions, selecting from a wide selection of courses within cell biology, molecular biology, biochemistry, genetics, microbiology, developmental biology, molecular physiology, and immunology.
You will also carry out a degree project at one of the departments collaborating in the programme: Molecular Biology and Functional Genomics, Genetics, Microbiology and Toxicology, Botany, and Cell Biology, Developmental Biology, Immunology and Physiology at the Wenner-Gren Institute.
The programme consists of elective courses at the second level in the main field of study of at least 30 HEC, a degree project in Molecular Life Sciences of 30/45/60 HEC and optional courses of up to 60 HEC.
Year 1 & 2. Compulsory courses:
Courses at the second level in Molecular Life Sciences of at least 30 HEC from a list of elective courses.
The elective courses are decided by the department board. The list of all elevtive courses should be updated before each new academic year. Before the start of a programme, there should be a list of the minimum number of courses where teaching is guaranteed during the programme.
Degree project in Molecular Life Sciences 30/45/60 HEC
Optional courses of up to 60 HEC.
