Master's Programme in Neurochemistry with Molecular Neurobiology, 120 credits

About the education

The Master's programme in Neurochemistry with Molecular Neurobiology is aimed at students holding a Bachelor's Degree in chemistry or biology and who wish to study the molecular function of the nervous system. The programme aims to provide students with a sound multidisciplinary background in neurochemistry, molecular neurobiology, peptide chemistry and recombinant techniques. The programme is closely connected with research at the Department of Neurochemistry and designed to cover most specializations within neurochemistry with molecular neurobiology including the molecular mechanisms behind neurodegenerative conditions like Alzheimer’s disease and polyglutamine disorders as well as cancer in the nervous system.

The programme consists of one compulsory course and at least three specialized courses offered, up to 30 credits freely chosen elective courses and a Degree Project which is conducted in a research group at the Department of Neurochemistry.

The programme provides a good platform for further graduate studies or for a professional career, both in Sweden and internationally.

Area of interest: Science and Mathematics

Science and mathematics help us understand how the world around us is connected – from the origin and structure of the universe, to the development and function of humanity and all other organisms on earth.

Scientific knowledge makes it possible to critically examine the credibility of information in different areas of everyday life, society, and the media.

As a scientist or mathematician, you will be attractive on a large job market that covers all parts of society and includes everything from pure technology companies to environment and healthcare, as well as research.
