Master's programme in Molecular Biology - Medical Biology

120 credits

The programme is offered for the last time autumn 2022.

The programme focusses on areas that play a central role in pharmaceutical and biotechnological development. You will take courses in pharmacology, immunology and infection biology, during which theory is integrated with training of laboratory skills. You will also achieve insights into the drug development process, from research to clinical use, and extensive training in oral and written communication. After having completed the programme you are prepared for research or work within pharmaceutical-, biotechnology-, and food industry.

The programme comprises two years of full-time studies (120 credits). Most courses are full-time studies, normally of 15 credits. The courses are typically teaching-intensive with lectures, seminars, theoretical and practical exercises as well as self-studies. Towards the end, you perform a Degree project of 30-60 credits. Your teachers are active researchers and you will study in close association with an international research environment.
