Programme of Chemistry of life
We are working on solutions for hybrid education that will take place online and on campus. Therefore the instructional modes, number of exams, the form of the exams and/or assignments may change. You will be informed through Brightspace in case of changes. The course information in the Course guide provides an indication of what you can expect in the course.
In the case of not being able to attend one or more practical courses/lab days due to corona measures, the course coordinator will decide if the student is obligated to re-take the missed meeting and how this will take place.
For the Specialisation Chemistry of Life the complete 120 EC programme is given below. Please note that eventually your programme has to be approved by the examination board.
A. a specialisation related major comprising:
- compulsory specialisation courses: 15 EC
- a specialisation related research internship chosen from the list 'departments for internships'. The internship NWI-MOL501A entails practical work, your master thesis, and a presentation (44 EC)
B. Scientific master courses: 6 EC.
Master courses from the Faculty of Science.
C. A second internship or a broadening programme: 30 EC
You can take a second internship (NWI-MOL502A) for instance at a different department, another institute (abroad) or in industry.
Theoretical broadening is possible by taking courses outside your own science-discipline (e.g. physics, mathematics, computing science) or taking a minor programme (15 EC or more) in a completely different discipline such as Economy or Business Administration.
D. Elective space (9 EC)
To be added to A, B, and/or C.
E. NWI-MOL601: a literature thesis (6 EC)
Usually you will select a topic for this literature thesis in accord with your internship supervisor.
F. NWI-MOL412 Career orientation (1 EC)
G. A Philosophy course (3 EC.)
