Master degrees in Bacteriology offer training in the identification, classification, and physiology of bacterial species and diseases.
Specialisms include Pathology, Pathogenesis and branches of Medicine concerned with Infectious Diseases. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject such as Biology or Medicine.
Courses in Bacteria Science prepare you for tackling a wide range of issues, from host-pathogen relationships, right through to the use of bacteria to overcome global challenges such as climate change, and improve quality of life in poverty-stricken regions.
As a result, the focus of your Masters may vary greatly. You can however expect to cover topics such as bacterial pathogenesis, host immunity and antibiotic resistance. You will do this through molecular approaches, including examining biochemical functions, genetics and genomics. Practical training in experiment design, lab testing, bioimaging and bioinformatics are a key component of most courses.
Your experience would make you suitable for roles in healthcare and pharmaceuticals, environmental industries, and biotechnology. Other careers may include research roles in institutes such as universities, drug design facilities, and food agencies, or policy making for government agencies and NGOs.
