The Master program takes two years, divided into four semesters, and covers two major and one minor subject. The first, required, major is biochemistry, the second may be chosen from inorganic, organic or physical chemistry, or cell biology. For each major subject, students have to take three lecture courses and one laboratory course. The minor can be chosen from any subject in biochemistry, chemistry, or biology and comprises two lecture courses and one lab course. Course work should be completed within the first three semesters; the fourth semester is devoted to the master's thesis, a six-month research project in one of the participating labs.
