Biochemistry - Msc Study  (English Track)

 

General

The program in the biochemistry track is intended for students studying for a master's degree in one of the departments of the Faculty of Life Sciences.

 

All the required courses in the track will be given in English.

 

 

Study program

 

The study program involves 30 semester hours of required and elective courses, carrying out research work, submitting a thesis and passing a final examination.  

 

1. Required faculty courses - 10 s/h

Safety in the Laboratory course (during the first year of studies) – no credit

Guided reading and discussion in research groups – 2 s/h

Departmental seminar for MSc students – each student will participate in the seminar given by the Department in which he performs his research – 2 s/h each year

 

One of the courses:

  • Biostatistics – 4 s/h
  • Statistical principles in experimental biology – 4 s/h

 

 

2. Required track courses:

 

Students must take 8 s/h from the following list of courses:

Basket of elective courses
(from among the Graduate School courses and third-year undergraduate courses)

 

To make up the total hours for the degree (30 semester hours), courses can be taken from the third year (undergraduate degree, up to 25% of the total credit points), from other tracks in the Graduate School, or from other faculties in fields related to life sciences (medicine, exact sciences). For courses that are not related to life sciences, maximum credit of 4 s/h will be given.
