Biochemie / Biochemistry (Master of Science)

Program: Biochemie / Biochemistry
Degree: Master of Science (M.Sc.)
Program length: 2 years / 4 semesters (120 ECTS points)
Start: winter and summer semester

From the atom to the dynamics of molecules in living cells - get inspired by the broad spectrum of Marburg biochemistry. Deepen your knowledge of topics such as metabolic biochemistry, membrane biology and bioanalytics. Contribute to current research topics and research the molecular understanding of microorganisms in global material cycles (climate gases and soil fertility through nitrogen and phosphorus availability) and their role as significant pathogens for humans and plants. Benefit from the close interaction with local industry partners at the Behring Campus and deepen your knowledge and techniques in research internships, some of which you can complete abroad.


The Marburg degree programme has a particular focus on synthetic microbiology, structural biology and quantitative high-resolution microscopy.


Obtaining the Master of Science degree with research-oriented training in biochemistry provides an excellent portfolio for advanced careers in academia and industry.
