The major is one of the following: cell and molecular biology, organic or physical chemistry or physics, the other two minors. The speciality of the programme is the multidisciplinary approach in sciences. In addition to major studies and advanced studies on related fields of science the studies include special courses on nanoscience. The courses introduce the students to both theoretical and experimental techniques of the nanoscience field. Master’s theses in the programme are always interdisciplinary. The application period for Autumn 2017 studies will opens by the end of 2016.
