Module Descriptions

Here you will find a description of all modules of the master program in chemistry. The descriptions are extracted from the regulations of the program. Details given in the study and in the examination regulations are combined to one single module description.

At the moment the module descriptions are German only. We are just working on the translations.

Please be familar with the "teaching" - WEB-pages of the group heads, because they generally offer online-information of their courses. If there is an extensive presentation available this is linked at the study & teaching pages of the institute.

Core Electives

Inorganic Chemistry (total 10 cr)

If this has not been performed in your previous bachelor program, you may also choose

of our bachelor program. (Tuition language is German)

Organic Chemistry (total 10 cr)

Physical and Theoretical Chemistry (total 10 cr)

Interdisciplinary Section (5 cr)

Projects

20 – 30 cr; at least 15 cr have to be selected from topics in inorganic, organic,physical or theoretical chemistry. Offered if there are free desks and benches respectivly. Please take care to apply in time!

With these modules no specific course is associated but you do tasks in different working groups instead. Differently from all other modules you may take these modules a bunch of times. Example: You do 2 research projects in 2 scientific groups where both projects have 10 cr.
