The technological and scientific advances move the boundaries for what is academically possible. Human DNA – the 3 billion building blocks of life – are now known and will come to revolutionise molecular bioscience. The next challenge will be to map out the function of genes.
The Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology has accepted this challenge and is among the frontrunners worldwide in the new research area of proteom analysis which is used to map proteins in humans and other organisms.
Shape the programme
The first year of the Master programme in Biochemistry and molecular biology consists of an experimental core course in advanced protein chemistry and biological mass spectrometry, which can be supplemented with an experimental course in molecular microbiology and/or an experimental course in cloning and characterisation of human proteins.
The programme is known for a large degree of electives. This gives you the opportunity to specialise according to your interests in all fields within the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology.
The last year of the programme is dedicated to the Master's thesis. During this period, you will be assigned to one of the department's research directors.
A vibrant study environment
The Master programme in Biochemistry and molecular biology is much more than courses, classes and lectures.
A strong study programme is one that integrates academic and social experiences to maximise learning and personal development. Therefore, at SDU, you find not only a place to study, but a place to cultivate new friendships and pursue co-curricular activities
Accordingly, SDU in Odense gathers most departments under the same roof. On campus you will also find the university library, an academic bookshop, several canteens, the Friday bar, a gym, a branch of Starbucks and a plethora of academic and social student associations.
