Chemistry (Master of Science)

The Chemistry master’s degree program aims at enabling students to independently solve complex problems that go beyond their individual knowledge, using a large variety of scientific methods that are taught in the course of the degree program. The degree program has a strong research focus and is primarily aimed at students who have completed a bachelor's degree in chemistry.

The Master's program covers 120 credit points in 4 semesters of standard study time and has a modular structure. This means that the program is not completed by a final examination, but by successfully completing all modules.

An overview of the intended course of study can be found below.

Program starting in the winter semester

Program starting in the summer semester


In the first and partly also in the second semester there are compulsory modules. In addition, from the second semester onwards, you have the opportunity to choose from compulsory elective modules, four of which you must complete successfully. At the end of the third semester, the focusing laboratory course should prepare you for the master's thesis (fourth semester).

Detailed information on the module contents can be found in the module guide.

The compulsory modules (1st and 2nd semester) must be completed by all students. In most cases, they are a prerequisite for the elective modules.

Starting in the 2nd semester, students can choose from currently 16 different elective modules (10 LP each). The elective modules allow for specialization. As a rule, the prerequisite for access to the individual compulsory elective modules is the completion of the compulsory modules from the respective subject area (see module guide).

40 credit points are required in this area.

The focusing laboratory course is intended to serve as preparation for the master's thesis and is thematically designed individually with the supervisor.

The master thesis (30 LP) takes a whole semester to complete. It usually follows on thematically from the preceding focusing laboratory course.
