The M.Sc. programme "Biochemistry and Molecular Biology" is an intensive, research oriented training programme. It will last either 18 or 24 months, depending on whether you participate in the accelerated schedule by participating in courses all year, or in the regular schedule (following the semester structure at German universities).You will receive an thorough education in biochemistry and molecular biology, which will expand your previous knowledge in chemistry or biology (or other related studies which you have finished with a B.Sc.). The education is organized in modules A - G which contain mandatory modules, a supplementary module of your choice, laboratory rotations, a project proposal and a Master Thesis.

"Microbial Systems (MicroSys)" is a specialization within the above mentioned programme with focus on molecular microbiology, diversity and applied microbiology. The Universities of Applied Sciences Bremen and Bremerhaven are participating in this specialization.



All courses are given in English.
