Master's Programme in Chemistry, 120 Credits

About the programme

Umeå University offers a two-year Master programme in Chemistry given in English with three profiles; Environmental Chemistry, Medicinal Chemistry, and Protein Chemistry.

The chemistry programme aims to provide knowledge and skills for solving and critically assessing chemistry-related problems. You will learn how to compile, analyze, critically review, and present scientific texts and your own data. The first year includes four in-depth courses that cover tools and theories in modern chemistry that bring you to a level required for the following profile courses. The training provided in these courses focuses primarily on advanced instrumental methodologies for chemical analysis, and modelling and interpretation of physico-chemical and biochemical phenomena. These courses also offer intense laboratory training to prepare you well for more advanced courses and work towards your Master's thesis in the second year.

The Master's project is a research project completed under the guidance of a supervisor, defended in public, and by a written thesis. The three profiles of the master programme match the strong research areas of the Chemistry Department:
- Environmental Chemistry
- Medicinal Chemistry
- Protein Chemistry
