Programme of Medical Epigenomics

For the Master's of Science in Science the complete 120 EC programme of the Chemistry of Life specialisation consists of:

A. compulsory specialisation courses: 15 EC

B. Research internships: 89 EC

You need to do two internships with a multidisciplinary character. The internships should focus on different disciplines. One of the internships should be related to your specialisation. This internship can be 59 EC or 45 EC.

The specialisation-related internship includes:

  • NWI-MOL501A: practical work, master thesis, presentation (33-53 EC).
  • NWI-MOL601: a literature thesis (6 EC). The thesis should be related to the specialisation, but on a different topic than the internship.
  • Optional specialisation courses relevant to the internship (maximum 6 EC).

The second internship should be in another discipline and can be 30 EC or 44 EC. This internship contains:

  • NWI-MOL502A: practical work, master thesis, presentation (24-44 EC).
  • Optional courses relevant to the internship (maximum 6 EC).

C. NWI-MOL412 Career orientation: 1 EC
D. Scientific Master's electives: 6 EC
 To be approved by the Examination Board. Courses offered at the Faculty of Science are automatically approved.
E. Free electives: 6 EC
F. Philosophy course: 3 EC.

For the Master of Science in Science the complete 120 EC programme is:

A. A specialisation related component comprising:

  • A specialisation related research internship chosen from the list 'departments for internships elsewhere in this prospectus: 59 EC*
    These 59 EC include:
    - NWI-MOL501A: Practical work, thesis, presentation: 47-53 EC
    - NWI-MOL601: Literature thesis: 6 EC
    - Optional elective specialisation course max 6 EC

B. NWI-MOL502A: A second research internship freely chosen in another discipline of 30 EC.*
Including practical work, written and oral report, and optionally a specialisation course of max 6 EC.

C. NWI-MOL412 Career orientation (1 EC)
D. Scientific master courses: 6 EC (of proven academic level and approved by the Examination Board)
E. Free electives: 6 EC
F. Philosophy 2: 3 EC. For more information about your options, click here.

One of the 15 EC compulsory courses may be interchanged with a course from another research specialisation available for Science students.

* Instead of internships of 59 EC and 30 EC, also two internships of 44 and 45 EC or a large internship of 89 EC may be taken.
This last option (89 EC) must be on a collaboration project of two research departments of different disciplines. The literature thesis must be written for one of these departments.
All research internships must have multidisciplinary elements.
