Masters degrees in Cell Biology focus on the uses, functions, and development of cells and their related systems and interactions. Specialisations are varied, with the chance to focus on animal and plant biology or specific branches of neuroscience and microbiology.
Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject.
You will gain training and experience in the concepts and techniques used in cutting edge Cell Biology research. Courses may focus particularly on the organisation of cells and cell tissue, and processes such as cell division and molecular biology. You may also investigate infection and immunity to diseases.
Practical experience such as lab testing, cell manipulation, and computational cell biology, refined through research and academic writing will provide you with transferrable skills which will be valuable for a wide range of roles.
Careers may include positions in medicine and veterinary science, or more exotic fields such as archaeology and palaeobiology. The biotech industry including biotherapeutics and bioenergy is also a popular route. You might also consider roles within university or government laboratories.
