MLS - Study Plan

Study plan for MLS

This page shows the study plan of the Curriculum in Molecular Life Sciences (activated in 2022-2023) which is similar to the only curriculum previously available for the MSc in Molecular Biology and Genetics. Slight differences between the study plans in Molecular Life Sciences (2022-2023) and in Molecular Biology and Genetics exist. The old study plan is available at the bottom of the page.

For precise and updated information on course contents and teachers, please consult this page. You can change the language of the page (upper right corner) and the academic year (Year of Enrolment/Anno di Immatricolazione). To change the Year of Enrolment: click on the button "Info", then change the Year of Enrolment. You may be required to click the button "study plan" to visualise subjects. Please switch to the English version of the page to see the information on each subject.

In November, students are asked to fill out study plans. For information please see this page, or contact the U.O.C. Gestione carriere studenti/ STUDENTS CAREERS DESK (see contacts here).
