Chemistry - Master Studies

Master’s Studies in Chemistry aims is to educate students and help them acquire and apply theoretical and practical knowledge in this domain.

The goal of the program is to enable the student to: use scientific and professional literature; to approach research work independently and/or as part of a team and publish original scientific and/or professional papers; participate in scientific gatherings, symposia, conferences, congresses and other forms of exchange of scientific thoughts, knowledge and experiences.

During studies, theory and practice are closely intertwined, and the students gain necessary skills through the use of relevant literature and experimental work, which allow them to work independently.

The Master’s Studies in Chemistry also aimed at acquiring knowledge for professional expertise in selected narrow scientific fields, as well as to develop the skills needed for a multidisciplinary approach to research.

The chosen way of studying connects theoretical and practical parts of teaching, and the preparation of seminar papers, the use of selected literature and experimental work allows students to acquire the necessary individual skills, which are used in research work and publication of results.

The goals of the study program are:

  • Preparation for further improvement and scientific growth;
  • Acquiring new theoretical and practical knowledge about chemical processes;
  • Raising awareness about the possibility of a practical application of knowledge in various domains of industry (chemical industry, drug industry, medicine, veterinary medicine, agriculture etc.);
  • Preparing students for working in education;
  • Gathering scientific staff who would apply scientific methodology to further aid the development of science and the process of education within the community;
  • Ability to work independently and as part of a team;
  • Raising awareness about the necessity of permanent education, the development of the society as a whole environmental protection;
  • Providing an academic education that exceeds the limits of the profession in its narrow sense and aims to raise awareness about a modern society values.

Upon obtaining a master’s degree in Chemistry, graduates are deemed competent for working in education, scientific laboratories and research centers, local and state administration institutions.

The students who graduate from this study program will acquire the following skills:

  • logical reasoning, formulating hypotheses, drawing conclusions;
  • professional communication and communication within a team;
  • further professional advancement;
  • keeping up with and understanding the contemporary currents within their profession and their social environment;
  • applying theoretical knowledge in practice;
  • ability to establish a critical/self-critical approach;
  • presenting work/research results;
  • professional ethics.

Upon finishing this program of study, the students will acquire the following subject-specific skills:

  • a thorough knowledge and understanding of chemical disciplines;
  • the ability to see connections between various chemical disciplines and between chemical disciplines and other sciences;
  • the ability to communicate scientific ideas effectively;
  • ability to use professional literature and modern information and communication technologies for acquiring new knowledge, i.e. for further independent professional development;
  • developed habits for monitoring, being informed about and applying innovations within their profession;
  • the ability to keep up with and understand the contemporary currents within their profession and their social environment;
  • the ability to plan and conduct experiments;
  • the ability to give a scientifically based interpretation of experimental research findings;
  • ability to further continue their education.

The study program of Chemistry of undergraduate studies contains all the basic elements relevant to chemistry. As such, it is performed at almost all higher education institutions of this type in the world.

Nearly all the elements of the study program, such as the academic title, duration of studies, ECTS, courses names and content, exams, learning outcomes and teacher competencies are in accordance with those in most European higher education institutions.

Furthermore, the curriculum of this program is influenced by the positive experience of those institutions which have successfully implemented the Bologna reform, working in the domain of higher education in chemistry.

To achieve this compatibility with the corresponding study programs in Europe, detailed analysis and comparison were performed. The compatibility is made possible by maintaining the enrollment requirements as well as the structure and the content of the program. The quality, contemporary character and compliance of this study program with corresponding international study programs implemented at foreign higher education institutions is evident.

Comparing study programs based on the representation of certain main groups of subjects shows a significant degree of their harmonization, while certain minimal deviations are present among elective subjects. In addition, many subjects among the comparable study programs are similar in content, while their names differ to an extent.
