What will you learn?

The overall objective of the Chemistry programme is to provide the fundamental scientific background and practical training for students as they prepare for chemistry-related careers or advanced study in fields including the traditional chemical specialties (for example in a Master’s degree programme). The graduates have basic chemical knowledges and they have problem-solving abilities in the fundamental chemical disciplines (analytical chemistry, inorganic chemistry, organic chemistry, and physical chemistry). The Chemistry programme offers three study plans, which share a coherent core of common courses in general, physical, inorganic, organic, and analytical chemistry. Based on their preferences, the students may choose to focus their studies on the development of knowledge and skills required in quality assurance and control in analytical laboratories (specialty Analytical Chemist - Manager of Chemical Laboratory) or deep understanding of interdisciplinary phenomena from biology, physics, and chemistry (specialty Biophysical Chemistry), or to be acquainted with a broad range of interdisciplinary and applied chemistry topics according to a one-field study plan.

Career opportunities

The graduates have knowledge and skills based on recent state of scientific research and development in main chemistry disciplines (inorganic chemistry, organic chemistry, analytical chemistry, and physical chemistry). Abilities of the graduates are supported by advanced knowledges of physics, mathematics, and English. The graduates are also able to perform independent work in chemical laboratory equipped by modern instrumentation. The graduates are also prepared for continuation studies in related Master's degree programmes at Masaryk University and other universities in the Czech Republic and abroad.

Admission requirements

a) Learning Potential Test or b) Special Test or c) Learning Potential Test and Special Test (Czech only)

Criteria for evaluation

Result of Learning Potential Test or Special Test

Recommended literature

The knowledge required to pass the Learning Potential Test is not obtained by studying specific information sources. Examples of previous years' tests can be found on http://www.muni.cz/study/admission/tsp

Application guide

Study options

Single-subject studies

Students have a pre-defined list of required courses, which are supplemented with selective and elective courses. The student pays full attention to the single field of study chosen.

Single-subject studies with specialization

In the single-subject studies, the student deepens knowledge in the concrete focus of the degree programme and chooses one specialization. The specialization is stated in the university diploma.

Follow-up studies

After completion of the Bachelor's studies, it is possible to continue further studies in any Master's degree programme (after satisfying the admission requirements). Typically, graduates select the Chemistry Master's degree programme at the Faculty of Science, MU with a range of specialties: Analytical chemistry, Inorganic chemistry, Biophysical chemistry, Physical chemistry, Material chemistry, Organic chemistry, and Structural chemistry.
