Are you fascinated by bacteria, viruses and unicellular fungi, including their immense diversity? Knowledge of microbiology is of fundamental importance within a wide range of fields – including everything from medicine and food to geology and meteorology. There are consequently many different industries available to microbiologists in the labour market.

Both macroscopic life and element cycling are dependent on bacteria and unicellular fungi. Knowledge of microbiology is therefore important for all types of biology and for several other subject areas such as medicine, food, agriculture, technology, chemistry, geology and meteorology. During this Master’s programme, you will learn, for example, how microorganisms are used to produce food, bulk chemicals and fine chemicals, including drugs. You will also obtain knowledge on how bacteria, viruses and unicellular fungi are used as powerful experimental systems in basic research and applied research.

Within the programme, you can specialise based on your preferences, in areas such as medical microbiology, biotechnology or cellular and molecular microbiology. The programme also provides extensive experimental experience and valuable knowledge in experimental design and analysing results. You will practice both oral and written presentations and obtain ample experience in working in groups. Teaching takes place on modern premises and in laboratories with advanced equipment.

The Master’s programme has a high proportion of scheduled lessons, and the interaction with teaching staff and course assistants is relaxed. The programme is conducted in an international environment and has strong ties with research. All of the teaching staff are researchers, and as a result, the teaching is continuously adapted based on current research. The Department of Biology has several world-leading research teams and conducts both basic researches and applied research. The language of instruction is English.
