The Chemistry Master's programme in Göttingen is characterised by a distinctive orientation towards research. It is a complex programme on a very high academic level, in which scientific knowledge is thoroughly broadened; the students gain knowledge of the methodology and experimental skills necessary to solve demanding chemical problems. Both an individual specialisation in different areas of chemistry and a broad overview of chemistry are therefore possible. The M.Sc. is a professional and research-oriented qualification that enables students to do scientific research independently within the framework of a Ph.D. programme. In the Master's programme, students study a wide range of optional modules depending on their area of specialisation. In addition, study foci in interdisciplinary fields e.g. between Chemistry and Physics or between Chemistry and Biology, can be chosen, the programme also includes elements of professional qualification to acquire key skills. It is possible to complete parts of the programme abroad.
Specialist subjects and fields of research in Göttingen
The Master's programme in Göttingen is characterised by its proximity to research and the faculty’s excellence in research. Research is focused on "Functional Biomolecular Chemistry", "Sustainable Chemistry" and "Analytical methods on Molecule Interaction". Through a wide range of internships in the faculty’s research groups, our students are able to participate in current research projects at an early stage.
The study programme is tought both in German and English. A sound knowledge of both languages is recommended to profit from the braod range of optional courses.
