Arzneimittelforschung / Drug Research (Master of Science)


The MSc course comprises four semesters and is non-consecutive, i.e. it is not based on a specific bachelor course. The study programme with emphasis on research is focussed on theoretical courses and current projects imparting a profound knowledge in various aspects of drug research. By conducting own research projects students are to develop professional skills in the pharmaceutical sciences which are mainly applicable in the pharmaceutical or pharmacy-related industry and pharmaceutical research institutions.


How is the MSc course structured?

The MSc course is characterised by a wide range of mandatory, core and advanced modules among which the students can select individually together with a mentor (university professor or university teacher). The students can decide for one of the following six pharmaceutical disciplines:

  • pharmaceutical/medicinal chemistry
  • pharmaceutical biology
  • pharmaceutical technology
  • pharmacology and toxicology
  • clinical pharmacy
  • pharmaceutical microbiology

In the first semesters the students attend several core modules to obtain basic knowledge in the pharmaceutical sciences. Simultaneously the students specialise in the selected pharmaceutical discipline by attending a variety of mandatory modules from this particular field. In the fourth semester they complete their studies with a master thesis in the selected discipline. In each semester modules counting for a total of 30 credits must be achieved.
