Programme structure

The Master programme in Biochemistry and molecular biology has a scope of 120 ECTS, equivalent to two years' full-time work.

The programme is based on the internationally recognised expertise of the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology in the areas of proteomics and biological mass spectrometry. 

The first semester consists of mandatory and constituent courses, whereas the second semester is devoted to electives. You can do elective courses at the University of Southern Denmark or abroad or conduct an individual laboratory project in cooperation with a business.

The second year of the programme is devoted to the Master's thesis, a 60 ECTS research project. This may be conducted at one of the laboratories of the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, within the areas of proteomics/mass spectrometry, molecular biomedicine or molecular microbiology. The project can also conducted at another laboratory, e.g. at the Odense University Hospital.

Graduates are awarded the title Master of Science (MSc) in Biochemistry and molecular biology.
