We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters Degrees in Molecular Genetics provide training in the study of genetics at the molecular level. They involve a focus on the processes that underlie the expression of genetic information in bodily functions.
Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject such as Medicine or the Biological Sciences.
You will explore analytical methods in human genetics and genomics, including the role of genes in disease, inheritance, and therapy. Scrutiny of the cell cycle in human and animal molecular models, alongside transgenesis, is a component of most courses. Transferrable skills are developed through practical exercises such as experiment design, bioimaging, data collection, and bioinformatics. Academic inquiry in areas such as drug design, ethics, and safety is also a key component.
Traditional careers include clinical genetics (undertaking laboratory testing and research in diagnostics facilities), and genetics counselling. Consultancy in industries such as biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, and veterinary science is also possible, with policy-making for government agencies, NGOs, and charities being a more exotic route.
