Biochemie (Master of Science)
|Course content and focus areas||
The Master’s degree course in biochemistry at the Goethe Universität Frankfurt is based on a long-standing tradition in biomolecular research and education. The course aims at providing scientific knowledge and occupational skills to candidates that they may become independent researchers. The Master’s programme includes Cellular Biochemistry, Structural Biology and Biophysics/Biophysical Chemistry and allows setting focal points depending on the students interests. Training is arranged in close cooperation with the local research environment and includes the departments of Physics, Molecular Biology, Medicine, Max-Planck-Institute for Biophysics, and Paul-Ehrlich-Institute. The programme especially accommodates membrane proteins and structural biology, areas in which Frankfurt has a strong research tradition. Graduates will be able to make decisions that are based on rational case analysis and reflect an established scientific tradition, while keeping ethic and social conditions in mind. The Natural- and Life sciences are developing very fast. Therefore it is important that the students continue to educate themselves and to integrate new knowledge throughout their subsequent careers. Our graduates are qualified to continue with a PhD or to get a job in industry, business management or in marketing, publishing companies or business consultancies.

|Admission requirements||Admission for the Master’s programme takes place by enrolling at the Goethe Universität Frankfurt.
If the university entrance qualification for the consecutive Master’s programme (namely the Bachelor’s degree) has not yet been completed, you can apply for the programme with a transcript of records on the basis of at least 80% of the required for the bachelor's degree CP (normally 144 credit points). This provisional certificate must be issued by an office authorised to award grades or issue certificates. If a student is admitted, this will be on a provisional basis. Provisional admission is valid until the end of the first semester of the master’s program. The bachelor’s degree must thus be handed in by March 31 (winter intake) or September 30 (summer intake) the latest.
|Mode of admission||Admission is not restricted.|
