The research-oriented Master of Science program in Molecular and Cellular Biology is taught in English to highly motivated and engaged students with a strong interest in unravelling molecular mechanisms on a sub-cellular level. It offers a state-of-the-art education at a modern research location in a wide variety of molecular and cellular core subjects, such as Cell Biology, and Microbiology. The master’s program in Molecular and Cellular Biology allows you to build on your bachelor’s degree (B.Sc. in biology or equivalent) and further deepen your knowledge through a variety of specialized modules. The master’s program is set up so that it allows for as much freedom as possible in the choice of subjects and the organization of courses. The goal of the master's program is to provide students with an excellent classical research education. Moreover, the program aims to convey key skills such as the ability to perform in a team, communication, organization and mediation skills, and intercultural competences.

Major topics

  • Cell Biology
  • Genetics
  • Human Biology and Genomics
  • Microbiology


After successful completion of the master's program, students may pursue an individual doctoral research project or a doctorate in one of the graduate schools of the Faculty of Biology.
