Description of the Course

The Department of Biology and Biotechnology offers the Master Programme in Molecular Biology and Genetics, an intensive 2-year, full-time, second level degree (Biology class) entirely taught in English and designed for graduates at the BA level who are seeking a qualification in advanced areas of Biology, with special attention to Genetics, Molecular Biology, Biochemistry, Cell Biology and Microbiology. Graduates will acquire a strong theoretical and methodological background relevant to both basic and applied aspects of these disciplines.

Students attending the Master Programme in Molecular Biology and Genetics come from European and extra-European countries. Every year, several foreign Visiting and Exchange students join the course thanks to the ERASMUS programme and other specific exchange programmes promoting internationalization and cultural exchange.

Students will have the possibility to choose between two different curricula: Molecular Life Science or Molecular and Digital Biology.
