Introduction

The master's degree in Analytical Chemistry provides specialized training through which students will learn to tackle specific analytical problems in a range of specific fields (the environment, pharmacy, nutrition, clinical settings, biomedicine, etc.), placing special emphasis on experimental work complemented by advanced theoretical training.
This master's degree has a study load of 60 ECTS credits and reflects the growing demand for graduates with specialized knowledge of analytical chemistry, as well as preparing students for access to doctoral studies. Graduates will have the training to work in chemical analysis laboratories dedicated to routine testing, basic research or advanced research. Most employment opportunities for graduates are in the chemical or pharmaceutical industries, in public or private laboratories involved in health and environmental control, food analyses, clinical analyses, and quality control, and other fields related to analytical chemistry.

Learning objectives

The objective of the master's degree in Analytical Chemistry is to build upon the education of graduates in chemistry and similar disciplines, strengthening their experimental experience and complementing it with advanced theoretical training. Therefore, it is designed to develop qualities such as rigour, initiative and a critical spirit in laboratory work, to stimulate the interest needed to approach research projects in new environments and to become familiar with the tools available. Finally, students will acquire the training to join R&D+i work groups in the public or private sectors in fields related to analytical chemistry.
