Admission Procedure - follow-up Master Studies
General information about the studiesThe Faculty of Science of Masaryk University offers degrees in the fields of Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, and Earth Sciences. The faculty's educational activities are aimed to prepare future professionals and scientists and future teachers for various types of schools, especially secondary schools. An integral part of the faculty's activities is conducting primary and applied research, through which the faculty contributes to the development of scientific knowledge.
In the academic year 2014/2015 the faculty is continuing to fulfill the concept of three-tier structure of studies (bachelor's-master's-doctoral). Bachelor degree programmes are typically three-year programmes that are intended for secondary school graduates. Master degree programmes are intended for bachelor degree graduates, and doctoral degree programmes are intended for master degree graduates.
Primary higher education qualification is achieved through bachelor and master degrees programmes. Their successful completion is awarded with the academic degree „bakalář" (Bc.), resp. „magistr" (Mgr.).
Bachelor degree programmes provide general knowledge in the given discipline. A Bachelor's degree is a prerequisite for admission into graduate studies (i.e. master studies). Some bachelor programmes are oriented towards a profession, assuming direct entry of graduates into practice.
The studies are either focused on one field (single field studies) aimed towards educating future scientific experts and researchers, or they are focused on two fields (two field studies) leading towards obtaining teacher qualifications. Fully qualified for teaching positions are the graduates of the fields of upper secondary school teaching in a subject (mathematics, physics, chemistry, biology, geography and cartography, geology), accredited within master’s degree programme framework. geography and cartography, geology), accredited within master’s degree programme framework. The applicants for those fields of study get qualified in education-specialised fields of bachelor’s programmes (mathematics, physics, chemistry, biology, geography and cartography, geology with a focus on education).
Graduates from the Faculty of Science MU will find employment in scientific and technical fields, in primary and applied research, in central and in departmental institutes, in the government sector, in industries, or in academics.
Graduates of master degree programmes are due to their education in theoretical and experimental areas of individual scientific fields (as well as in information technology) fully qualified for individual creative work in primary and applied research in various departmental or industrial organisations including universities. Graduates of programmes focused on teaching are prepared for teaching positions in at least two subjects at all types of secondary schools.
