Overview

In the Master's Programme in Chemistry and Molecular Sciences from University of Helsinki, you will become profoundly familiar with experimental research methods in one or more fields of chemistry, such as analytical and synthetic chemistry, radiochemistry, molecular research, and spectroscopy. The studies include lecture courses, examinations and contact teaching, laboratory courses, presentation series and seminars. Compared to the Bachelor's degree, these studies require more independent work. The Master’s degree culminates in an extensive Master's thesis that includes practical research.

  • Know how to search for and manage chemical research data and use them to plan and perform demanding duties in chemical laboratories.
  • Be able to act as a chemical expert in project planning and management, both independently and as a member of a team.
  • Be able to present your results accurately in accordance with the practices of the field, both orally and in writing, and prepare extensive papers and reports.

As a chemical expert, you can embark on a career in industry, research or education or in the business sector. Your work might also involve applications of environmental or biological sciences, the manufacture of pharmaceutical products, or the development of technological materials or new energy solutions. 

Potential employers include private companies, research and educational institutes, public agencies and supervisory authorities both abroad and in Finland. The chemicals industry is a major employer and one of the largest export industries in Finland.
