The joint Master’s degree program in "Biological Chemistry" is a unique program offered by both the Johannes Kepler University and the University of South Bohemia (USB) in Budweis (České Budějovice). The program expands on the curriculum of the joint Bachelor’s degree program in Biological Chemistry (JKU/USB). The curriculum is highly flexible, allowing students to pursue an interdisciplinary combination of subjects in chemistry, biochemistry, biology and biophysics as well as individual course selections. Graduates of the Bachelor’s degree program in Technical Chemistry (JKU) – and other comparable undergraduate majors – can be admitted to the Master’s degree program after successfully completing bridging subjects in Biology. The Master’s degree program is offered entirely in English and students are awarded two diplomas (MSc, Mgr.).
