Master’s Degree in Chemistry is, essentially, a passage between the Bachelor’s degree, based mainly on the rigorous curriculum of introductory (theoretical and practical) courses, and the Doctoral studies, based mostly on independent research. As such, this program introduces for the first time the methods and techniques of scientific research in a particular area of Chemistry via undertaking a novel research project under the supervision of a faculty member from the Institute of Chemistry. However, students also broaden their knowledge of chemistry through a selection of taught courses and are able to tailor their curriculum to meet personal research interests.
A list of career opportunities for the M.Sc. in Chemistry is long and diverse. Graduates of this program have many opportunities to use their knowledge within a range of research sectors, including leading roles within chemical and related industries, hi-tech, healthcare, educational institutions or public services. Masters of Chemistry are in high demand in essentially all branches of the national job market. Yet, the degree should be a degree of choice for students who plan to pursue PhD studies in one of the traditional or interdisciplinary sub-areas of the field.
