The MSc in Molecular Biology programme is both practical and research-oriented, reflecting the interests of business and industry, research institutions, and the public sector. This flexible programme accommodates the interests of the individual student because it allows you to specialise in a particular subject area while acquiring a general mastery of molecular biology.
Students can choose to specialise within a choice of fields, including one of the five branches of molecular biology in which Aarhus University is particularly strong: molecular medicine, structural biology, systems biology, plant biology, and quantitative genetics.
The study programme can be tailored to fit the individual student’s qualifications and interests. In the first year, you will follow an individually planned course programme. In the second year, you will write a thesis. There are excellent opportunities for collaboration with a group of researchers in connection with your thesis project work, and this gives you the chance to participate in the group’s research projects, academic discussions, and articles.
Teaching in the Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics is greatly influenced by the research conducted here, as all the lecturers are active researchers. Students gain insight into ongoing research projects across the entire spectrum of molecular biology – from bacteria and yeast to humans. The understanding of biochemistry and molecular biology is based upon the entire spectrum, from atoms to organisms.
