Courses within the Master's programme in Molecular Biology

The Master’s programme in Molecular Biology consists of elective courses, allowing you to create a unique scientific profile. You can either deepen your knowledge in your field or broaden your knowledge by adding other natural science subjects to your curriculum. You can also choose to study any other subject taught at the University of Gothenburg.

To receive a Master's degree in Molecular Biology, you must have passed courses equivalent to 120 higher education credits, of which

  • 60 higher education credits at advanced level within the major subject, including a degree project of at least 30 higher education credits
  • 30 higher education credits at advanced level in elective subjects
  • 30 higher education credits either at basic or advanced level in elective subjects.
