     Msc Study Track in Biochemistry

     

    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

    Research Group Seminar – 2 s/h

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

    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.

     

    Below are a number of recommended courses:
