The master’s programme in Chemistry gives you a broad education which can lead to a multitude of different careers. You may work in chemical research and development at Danish universities or universities abroad or in the industry, you can teach, or you may get a job in the health sector or environmental sector.
In the master’s programme in Chemistry, you will take a range of chemical courses.
The core courses are:
- Spectroscopy and structure chemistry
- Inorganic chemistry
- Organic chemistry
- Analytical chemistry
- Theoretical chemistry
These courses are partly mandatory courses in the master’s programme in Chemistry and partly elective courses.
The degree is completed through a one year thesis project where you will typically be assigned to one of the research groups at Department of Physics and Chemistry, but you also have the opportunity to write your thesis in collaboration with external partners, for instance in the chemical industry.
Research in the Department of Physics and Chemistry
The department values the fundamental scientific research in a broad range of subjects from Physics and Chemistry to related disciplines like Biophysics and Nano-bioscience. Theory, computer calculations and experiments are brought into play to create new results and techniques to benefit both science and technique.
The Department of Physics and Chemistry has four core research fields:
- Materials, environment and energy
- Theory, calculation and simulation
- Synthesis and pharmaceutical science
- Living technology and biophysics
The department is among the best in the world in research of modified DNA as well as research in the physcis of biomembranes which help us deliver medicine aimed at infected cells in the body. The Department of Physics and Chemistry also hold several of Europe’s key assets in work with chemical and physical methods of emulating fundamental processes of life.

Chemistry with a research profile
In the master’s programme in Chemistry with a research profile, you get the opportunity to immerse yourself in current issues and complete your own research projects. The programme will provide you with a good basis for handling complex problems which are relevant in many different careers.
Graduates who have completed this master programme are entitled to use the title of Master of Science (MSc) in Chemistry.

A complete student environment
As a student at University of Southern Denmark, you become part of a study environment we call Living Science. Your day will be characterised by great academic value and you can look forward to meeting your fellow students as well as researchers from a wide variety of fields. But a university programme is much more than courses, classes and lectures. Good friends, a solid network and a living study environment are all part of creating a connection between the academic and social spheres.
