Master of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology

Since winter semester 2010/11 the MSc of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology replaced the MSc Biochemistry amd Molcular Biology amd MSc Biochemisty, Cell and Molecular Biology.

Course schedule and Module guide:

The studies are regulated by Allgemeinen Bestimmungen der Universität Potsdam für Bachelor- und Masterstudiengänge (german) and  Fachspezifische Ordnung für die biowissenschaftlichen Bachelor- und Masterstudiengänge (german).

The MSc contains two "Kernmodule", which give an overview of recent scientific developements in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. Furthermore, we offer research orientated "Richtungsmodule", which contain a large practical part: in a six-week practical work the students get to know three differnet working groups and their reserach fields. Futher "Wahlpflichtmodule" mediate specific knowledge in Biochemistry, Biology, Chemistry and other life sciences and extant knowledge in "key qualifications". In a number of modules researchers of the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Plant Physiology, the MPI of Colloids and Interfaces and the Fraunhofer institute of Biomedial Engineering are involved.

The standard period of study includes the Master thesis (6 month) and lasts four semesters.
