The master's degree in chemistry is based on the very broad range of subjects in chemistry in Marburg: In addition to inorganic, organic and physical chemistry, analytical chemistry, biological chemistry, bioinorganic chemistry, theoretical chemistry and biochemistry are represented in research and teaching in Marburg. The "design" of the M.Sc. course allows students to put together "their" course individually in all variants. The spectrum of possibilities ranges from a classic "diploma-related" study to a strong specialization that largely bypasses the core disciplines. Only 15 of 120 credit points in total have to be completed in inorganic, organic or physical chemistry, 63 credit points can be acquired in elective subjects that can be freely selected according to certain rules.

If this is not yet available, a transcript of records with a calculated average grade based on at least 80% of the credit points required for the Bachelor's degree can be submitted.

The examination board can combine the admission with the condition that additional study achievements and / or examinations of a maximum of 30 credit points are achieved. In this case, the course can be extended accordingly.

Proof of course-specific knowledge and skills:


Approval mode:

Direct admission is granted if the admission requirements are fully met.



Although the "classic" degree of chemistry graduates is still the doctorate, for which there are many possibilities in Marburg (e.g. in principle also in pharmacy, medical research, biology and physics), it is also quite possible with the master’s degree. Graduate to pursue a position in industry or public service.
