About

The Master's degree program Chemical Biology at TU Dortmund University enables students to deepen their knowledge and practical skills in light of the current state of re­search in order to work independently, e.g. in the fields of re­search, development, production or analytics.

Overview

The degree program Chemical Biology at TU Dortmund University focuses on the molecular aspects of the life sciences with respect to the understanding of biological processes and their targeted chemical manipulation. In addition, modern methods of biotechnology and bioanalytics as well as their applications are taught.

Features

In compulsory elective lectures, laboratory courses and seminars in chemical biology, cell biology and medicinal chemistry, students deepen their theoretical knowledge and practical skills in research-relevant topics. They can also take courses in chemistry or other natural or non-scientific fields.

In addition, students choose a focus area in which they participate as interns in ongoing research and demonstrate their ability to conduct independent research in the Master's thesis. The completion of the Master's thesis, scheduled to take six months, marks the end of the degree program.

General requirements

  • The Master's degree program Chemical Biology is based on the corresponding Bachelor's degree program. Therefore, not only a comprehensive theoretical education from the Bachelor’s degree program is required, but also a comparable scope of laboratory courses, not only in the field of biochemistry/chemical biology, but also in chemistry.
  • Thus, admission to the Master's degree program is only possible if the Bachelor's degree program is comparable to the Bachelor's degree program in Chemistry/Chemical Biology at TU Dortmund University. An application for admission must be submitted to verify the equivalence.
  • A grade of at least 3.2 is required for admission to the Master's degree program.
