The master of science in Chemistry is a four-semester program. In the first two semesters students take advanced courses in the areas of chemistry in which they do not intend to write their master’s thesis, and in the last two semesters they take courses in the area in which they are writing their thesis as well as in neighboring areas. Students write their master’s thesis during the fourth semester. The curriculum consists of four modules. The student’s grade for each module is made up of a practical examination and an oral examination. The new interdisciplinary module “Methods and Concepts” includes courses from both chemistry and neighboring fields (e.g., physics, biology, microsystems engineering). The degree program is characterized by an interdisciplinary approach and the opportunity to gain experience abroad. Students are allowed to complete some of their coursework at other faculties of the university or at research institutes abroad. This work is recognized in full as credit toward the degree.


Disclaimer
The versions of statutes with relevance to teaching and learning provided on this page by the Department of Legal Affairs (in particular admission and selection regulations as well as subject and examination regulations) are primarily for information purposes. This means that all amendments subsequently agreed upon by the University Senate have been integrated into the respective text of the original statutes; in the case of the examination regulations for bachelor's and master's degree programmes, this generally relates to extracts of the respective examination regulations (framework examination regulations, subject-specific provisions, and appendices).
The greatest care has been taken in writing these versions. Nevertheless, it cannot be entirely ruled out that errors may have occurred. Consequently, it is solely the officially announced statutes and statute amendments that are legally binding, i.e. as published in the Amtlichen Bekanntmachungen der Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg im Breisgau [de] or, up to the year 2000, in the official gazette of the Baden-Württemberg Ministry of Science, Research and the Arts.
