Education in Chemistry

Lund University

Previous Master's programmes

From autumn 2019 the master's programmes in Protein Science and Organizing Molecular Matter are not open for applications. Students who are already on the programmes, and students fulfilling the requirements for the degrees, can still have a degree in Protein Science or Organizing Molecular Matter.

Master's Programme in Chemistry

For students starting the Master's Programme in Chemistry 2018 and earlier, there will be no major changes in the studies or requriements for the master's degree.

Master's Programme in Protein Science

Understanding proteins is central to understanding and solving both medical and biotechnological problems on the molecular level. This programme explores the molecular structures and functional mechanisms of a large number of proteins. Graduates from the programme will master methods of cloning, expression and purification of proteins, and a number of specialised techniques for analysing proteins. They will also be able to use and understand primary scientific publications, and have the ability to independently plan, carry out and critically evaluate experiments.

Compulsory Courses (number of ECTS credits within parenthesis)
KEMM13 Biochemistry – Advanced Course (15), KEMM15 Structural Bioinformatics (15), Master’s degree project(s) comprising a total of 60 credits (minimum 30 credits each). For more information, see Programme Fact Sheet (below).

Career prospects
Graduates from the programme are highly skilled in conducting research and development, and are well prepared both for work in the biomedical/biotechnical industries and for commencing PhD studies.

Master's Programme in Organizing Molecular Matter

The purpose of the programme is to give you a broad and fundamental knowledge in the field of physical chemistry, with an emphasis on the fields of surface and colloid chemistry, nanochemistry, and soft condensed matter. Students develop advanced laboratory skills, profound theoretical comprehension of fundamental mechanisms and good understanding of practical applications. Special emphasis is given to an unbroken line of understanding, from quantum mechanical description of atoms and molecules to complex supramolecular structures, as well as their industrial and biological applications.

Compulsory Courses (number of ECTS credits within parenthesis)
KEMM07 Surface and Colloid Chemistry – Advanced Course, (15), KEMM27 Chemist’s Modelling Tools, (15), KEMM17 Magnetic Resonance – Spectroscopy and Imaging, (7.5 ), KEMM38 Statistical Thermodynamics and Molecular Simulation, (7.5), KEMM37 Scattering Methods, (7.5), KEMM28 Molecular Quantum Mechanics, (7.5), Master’s degree project comprising at least 30 credits. For more information, see Programme Fact Sheet (below).
