Masters degrees in Analytical Chemistry equip postgraduates with the instrumental techniques and analytical methods used to separate, identify and quantify matter.
Taught MSc courses are typical for this field, though research oriented MRes and MPhil programmes may also be available at some institutions. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject such as Chemistry.
Training is provided in a range of ‘classical’ and instrumental methods used in professional practice for a variety of contexts. These include processes such as precipitation, extraction and distillation, as well as chromatography and experimental design.
You will use these techniques to undertake qualitative and quantitative analysis of a range of materials and chemicals to better understand these processes in the context of industry. Applicable fields include medicine, pharmaceuticals, engineering and environmental analysis, meaning you can specialise your studies in any number of areas.
Careers in this field are highly varied, with roles ranging from lab-based work within research institutes and medical centres, to forensics and archaeological practices such as paleobiology. Other roles may include positions within regulatory authorities, manufacturing management, or even further research at PhD level.
