The Department of Chemistry offers a two-year MSc in Chemistry. The degree programme is open to students with a Bachelor’s degree in chemistry from universities and teaching institutions in Denmark and abroad. The programme is research-oriented and reflects the interests of the business community, research institutions and the public sector. It is flexible, and can be tailored to match the academic interests of the individual student. As a student on the programme you get to specialise in a particular subject area, while at the same time acquiring general competencies in chemistry.

Teaching at the university is greatly influenced by the research conducted here, as the lecturers are active researchers. All classes on the MSc programme are taught in English. As an MSc student, you have excellent opportunities for working with researchers in the laboratory, and you can also complete a project in collaboration with a private company or a public institution.

Career Opportunities  

Graduates from the Department of Chemistry find work in a wide range of fields and institutions. Most jobs are within research, development, teaching, communication or consultancy in the public or private sectors, particularly in chemical and pharmaceutical companies. Chemists employed in the chemical industry typically perform a wide range of functions: for example developing new products, analysing chemical reactions in order to improve them, or supervising production to prevent the occurrence of errors. If your wish is to be a communicator, you can choose to teach at Danish upper secondary schools or at laboratory-technician or teacher-training colleges, or in adult education or other advanced education programmes. In most of these schools, the teaching language is Danish.

It is also possible to enter the PhD programme at Aarhus University during or after MSc studies. To be enrolled on the PhD programme, students must apply to the Graduate School of Science and Technology (GSST) at Aarhus University. The combined MSc and PhD programme lasts five years.
