This modular Master's degree delivers comprehensive training in analytical chemistry, with the opportunity to specialise in areas such as analysis of nano materials, clinical and biopharmaceutical or environmental analysis.
The programme is available both part-time and full-time, by day release, and offers the opportunity to complete a research project in our research laboratories. This is a laboratory-based subject, with constant contact between staff and students which creates opportunities for you to comment on, and take responsibility for, the direction of your studies.
This course will develop your knowledge and understanding of key areas of analytical science and its practical applications, advance your understanding of recent advances in the field and equip you with the skills to formulate a research or method development plan and carry out the appropriate literature and data searches. You will also learn how to carry out chemical manipulations, operate advanced analytical equipment and work safely and efficiently in a laboratory.
Why study this course at Birkbeck?
Part-time study by day release allows you to combine study with other commitments, and accumulate modules over 2-5 years.
Includes a research project, which may be completed at your place of work if appropriate.
Available with specialisms in forensic analysis, clinical and biopharmaceutical analysis or environmental analysis.
Chemistry is taught in the School of Science, which offers state-of-the-art instrumental and computing facilities, and the possibility of collaborating with industry. The School also provides a seminar programme and skills training across disciplines.
