Beschreibung

Beschreibung der Fachrichtung

This Master’s degree program is offered by the Biozentrum of the University of Basel. It provides a direct access to contemporary molecular biology research. The Biozentrum conducts research and teaching at the highest international level and creates a working atmosphere which equally promotes professional and personal development. The core activity of the program is a supervised practical research work lasting one year. In parallel, the students also attend lectures to strengthen their knowledge in their chosen specialist subjects. These include Biochemistry, Biophysics, Computational Biology, Developmental Biology, Genetics, Immunology, Infection Biology, Microbiology, Neurobiology, Pharmacology, Structural Biology and Cell Biology. Towards their Master’s degree, the students demonstrate their capacity to conduct a scientific research project by presenting the results of their work in both written and oral form.

Beschreibung des Angebots

Focal areas of teaching and research

Research at the Biozentrum Basel embraces a wide range of topics and techniques, while following an overarching intent to understand the molecular organization of living organisms. The research is thus concerned with structure and function of macromolecules, the wiring of regulatory circuits, and the general principles underlying complex biological systems and their dynamic interactions. Currently, the research groups of the Biozentrum comprise five focal areas of investigation: Growth & Development, Infection Biology, Neurobiology, Structural Biology & Biophysics and Computational & Systems Biology. These research areas share concepts and technologies and act in a synergic and collaborative manner. New relevant questions often arise at the overlap between the research areas, while innovative solutions arise from the individual technical. The Master’s degree program has been increasingly designed to meet the requirements of modern biological research.

Course structure

The Master of Science degree is a postgraduate degree that requires a successfully completed Bachelor’s program. The Master's program awards 90 ECTS credits in total. The Master’s degree program Molecular Biology is a so called mono-course consisting of only one core subject. Supervised practical work over the course of one year constitutes the core of the studies.

Aufbau der Ausbildung

One ECTS credit point roughly equals 30 hours of studying.

Curriculum master studies ECTS

Master’s thesis 50
Master’s examination 10
In-depth professional studies 30

Fächerkombination

The degree programs at the Faculty of Science are generally mono-courses with the possible addition of an in-depth subject and an elective subject. The Master’s degree program Molecular Biology does include an elective subject; however, no other subjects are required.
 
It is possible to study biology in combination with a second subject from the Faculty of Humanities or the sports sciences (see UNI INFO “Biologie - ausserfakultäres Fach”).
 

The professional exam for the teaching diploma for secondary schools requires a Master’s degree in one or two subjects (i.e. Biology). At least one of the two subjects has to be successfully completed at a Master’s level. For the second subject at least 90 ECTS credits have to be awarded in consultation with the University of Applied Sciences and Arts Northwestern Switzerland (FHNW) and the teaching commission of the respective subject. The mandatory courses in biology are stated in an information sheet which can be obtained from the Studies Secretariat Biology.

Abschluss

  • Master Universitäre Hochschule UH

Master of Science in Molecular Biology (MSc)

Leistungskontrollen / Prüfungen

Student performance is assessed through course accompanying certificates, proof of course participation according to study contracts, a Master's thesis and through a Master's examination.

Perspektiven

Doktorat / PhD

A Master of Science in Biology qualifies for a doctorate in biochemistry, biophysics, botany, computational biology, genetics, microbiology, molecular biology, neurobiology, structural biology, cell biology or zoology. Trans-faculty doctorates are possible in the fields of epidemiology, history of the sciences, medical-biological research and pharmacology.

The doctoral studies last typically 3–4 years. The acceptance of the dissertation is followed by an oral examination in the doctoral subject.

Lehrer/in Sek. II

The teaching diploma enables teaching within the general school system at the Secondary Level II and is based on the academic degree at Master’s level of a university in one or two subjects. In addition, two semesters of vocational training at the school for teacher education at FHNW have to be completed. The diploma does not require a Master's degree in a second subject; however, it is advisable due to better career options later after graduation. Details are to be found in UNI INFO «Lehrdiplom für Maturitätsschulen». Also see: http://www.fhnw.ch/ph/isek/Sekundarstufe 2
