The Master's degree program Chem­is­try 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. 



Chemistry students at TU Dortmund University can choose between two major fields of study. The major field “Molecules and Materials” contains mainly courses in inorganic and organic chem­is­try. In the major field “Ex­peri­ment and Theory”, on the other hand, students select courses in physical/theoretical and industrial chem­is­try.

In addition to compulsory elective lectures and laboratory courses, students do a re­search internship in one subject of the major field. Through the final Master's thesis in the same subject, students demonstrate their ability to work independently in science.
