The four-semester master study programme offers in-depth scientific education with specific attention to main research topics in chemistry, such as inorganic chemistry, organic chemistry, physical chemistry, analytical chemistry, materials chemistry, and macromolecular chemistry. A designation of the diploma of the master of chemistry to the specializations „Materials and Interfaces“, „Light and Matter“ or „Molecular Sciences“ is possible.
The consecutive master study programme is designed to qualify students for a job in a chemistry oriented field or to begin in a doctoral program in chemistry. In particular, students are introduced to modern theoretical and experimental developments in the field of study in its entire breadth. They learn to develop strategies for solving complex issues and to act with scientific responsibility. Moreover, the offer of a variable specialization enables the students to put together an individual educational profile in the course of the study programme.
During the first semester, advanced theoretical and methodical skills in the core subjects and in two application-oriented fields of study are imparted. In these courses, perspectives for specialization in the respective subject are highlighted and the basis for academic development is provided. From the second semester onward, deepening of knowledge in elective modules takes place. In the fourth semester, the master‘s thesis is written in the subject of specialization.
Two elective courses from the core subjects, i.e. inorganic, organic and physical chemistry, and from application-oriented subjects, i.e. analytical, materials and macromolecular chemistry, can be chosen.
1) Bachelor of Science or equivalent (with grade 2.5 or better)
2) If the above criteria are not met, there is the possibility to qualify on the basis of letters of recommendation and a discussion with academic experts.
3) Language Requirements:
- English as a native language or
- TOEFL (Code No. 8429) 533 (paper-based), 200 (computer-based), 72 (internet-based) or
- CAE level C or
- IELTS grade 6 or equivalent or
- English on level B2 of the CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages)
The current examination regulations is valid.
The language of instruction is English.
Lab courses are part of the elective subjects.
Examination regulations/degree plan/module
Examination regulations (FPOs) specify the basic structures of a degree program (e.g. admission requirements and contents to be studied). Students are automatically subject to the current version of their FPO when they matriculate for their first subject-related semester. This means that even if the FPO changes during their studies, the original version according to which they matriculated will remain valid (provided that the FPO does not expire).
The respective degree plan is the recommended example progress of the studies in individual subjects and is part of a FPO.
Supplementary provisions and details for any module to be studied can be found in the module manually (e.g. requirements for taking a written test or content-related information on the modules/events, ...).
The internship rules define the conditions under which the required or optional internships must be completed.
We recommend at least looking at the study schedule for your degree program before the lecture time starts, to ensure that you know which modules are intended for the start of your studies.
