Overview

Analytical chemistry plays a crucial role in many areas of science and society. Chemical compounds in a variety of materials and environments must be identified and quantified for the development of new pharmaceuticals, the unravelling of complex biological systems or the design of new sustainable materials and chemical processes.

Analytical chemistry provides the methods and techniques that make this possible. Its impact is not restricted to chemistry alone: progress in medicine, biology, and environmental and material sciences is also strongly dependent on the availability of new analytical tools.

The Chemistry (Joint Degree UvA-VU) - Analytical Sciences programme at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam and UvA is unique in the Netherlands, in that it focuses purely on all aspects of analytical chemistry - a specialisation for which there is currently a great demand in the labour market. It covers a large range of modern analytical techniques, such as chromatography, mass spectrometry, spectroscopy and laser-based approaches. It covers general concepts and strategies for analysis, from sampling to data treatment. And it explores various application fields, such as biochemical, industrial, pharmaceutical and forensic analysis.

Start working

Graduates of the Master's programme Chemistry typically pursue careers:

  • as PhD students at chemistry institutes around the world, progressing from there to careers in academia or industry
