About

Do you like to understand how the world around us is constructed, right down to its tiniest constituents? The Chemistry programme of the University of Oslo enables you to study a wide range of issues in depth. You can choose everything from producing new matter and materials, conducting tests, investigations and analyses, to modelling and simulating chemical processes and reactions. 

Overview

A brief description of the programme

The Chemistry programme of the University of Oslo enables you to choose an area of specialisation in most fields of chemistry.

Half of your time will be spent on your master's thesis where you will be working in one of our research communities under the supervision of experienced researchers. Working with a research project for your thesis will train you to critically evaluate research literature, analyse data, often in conjunction with laboratory work, and plan and conduct independent work. You will also become experienced at writing reports and giving oral presentations.  The other half of your study time will mainly consist of course modules providing you with background knowledge to support your master's thesis.

As a master's student at the Department of Chemistry you get a ticket into one of Norway's leading research communities in chemistry. Amongst other things, we host the Hylleraas Centre, a Centre of Excellence for research in Computational Chemistry. You will also have the opportunity to conduct your thesis in association with one of the many research institutes in the Oslo area, or at one of the private companies approved by the Department of Chemistry.
