Chemistry MSc

This programme is offered jointly with the Universiteit van Amsterdam (UvA).

During the Master's in Chemistry, students can specialize themselves by doing a Major in one of the following disciplines:

  • Analytical Sciences
  • Molecular Sciences
  • Science for Energy and Sustainability
  • Atomic Scale Modelling of Physical, Chemical and Biomoleculair Systems (AtoSiM)
  • Science, Business and Innovation

The Master's programme of Chemistry offers three different variants for graduation:

  • Research variant (O - variant)
  • Society-oriented variant (M - variant)
  • Communication-education variant (C / E - variant)

The global composition of each variant is indicated below:
