Courses and programmes
We offer six different programmes in all areas of chemistry, from smallest atom to the larger biomolecules. From sustainable chemistry to neurochemistry with molecular neurobiology.
A world-class chemistry education may sound cheesy, but we dare to promise that this is exactly what we offer. The bachelor's programme gives you knowledge in all areas of chemistry, great experience of working in the lab and close collaboration with talented researchers and committed teachers. Are you perhaps the one who will lead the work towards a more sustainable world?
Our bachelor programme is taught in Swedish during the first two years, then in English on the third.
If you want to pursue a career in research or get a good position in the private sector, it is well worth investing time in doing a masters. This is a time where you can really immerse yourself in the areas of chemistry you find most intresting.
We offer six master's programmes that specialize in different parts of the chemistry subject, from smallest atom to largest biomolecule, and the full orchestra of the cell. The education is two years and after completing your studies you will receive a master's degree. All programs include an independent project carried out within an ongoing research project at the university or at an external workplace.
Read all about our master's programmes below.
Biochemistry with Specialization in Protein Chemistry
Proteins are the building blocks of life. They play a central role in various disease processes and can also be used for therapeutic purposes. If you want to learn more about these fascinating molecules then the master’s programme in Biochemistry with Specialization in Protein Chemistry could be for you.
Molecular Techniques in Life Science
The programme fosters graduates for a professional research career in Life Science. It has a strong focus on molecular techniques for disease therapies and diagnostic tools, coupled with substantial training in data analysis (bioinformatics and programming). The programme is a collaboration between Karolinska Institutet, KTH and Stockholm University at the Science for Life Laboratory in Stockholm.
Neurochemistry with Molecular Neurobiology
Are you interested in how the nervous system works at its most fundamental level? Do you want to study at the frontier where chemistry and biology meet? Then this highly selective master’s programme, the only one in Europe dedicated to neurochemistry with molecular neurobiology, could be for you.
The master’s programme in Organic Chemistry examines how to identify and synthesize small carbon-based molecules and describe how they interact in complex biological systems.
Sustainability - how to achieve and maintain it - depends on several complex factors where sustainable chemistry is key. Sustainable chemistry is a broad field that addresses and solves important environmental and climate change related problems.
PhD-studies, or a doctoral education, is the highest level you can study at university. A completed doctoral education leads to a doctoral degree, so called PhD. As a doctoral student, you are trained in problem solving, critical thinking, and using the scientific method. You will also learn to both work independently and to collaborate with other researchers.
