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
- molecular research, and
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.
The programme is multilingual, which means you can complete your degree entirely in English, but can also use Finnish or Swedish if you wish. All courses given by the Master's Programme will be lectured in English.
A Master’s degree in Chemistry and Molecular Sciences qualifies you for expert positions in a wide range of fields, such as industry, research or education. The chemicals industry is a major employer and one of the largest export industries in Finland.
Your work could also involve applications of environmental or biological sciences, the manufacture of pharmaceutical products, or the development of technological materials or new energy solutions. In the private sector, your duties might include research and development, quality management, training or commerce. Customs and forensic chemists, and chemists working in environmental control analyse samples as part of their duties. Chemical research often requires interdisciplinary and international cooperation.
As a chemist, you can be a part of developing new inventions and serve as an expert in your field and as a connoisseur of natural phenomena.
