Descrizione della formazione

Organisation des études

The Master of Science in Life Sciences is offered in cooperation with three other Swiss Universities of Applied Sciences, namely: Berner Fachhochschule BFH, Fachhochschule Nordwestschweiz FHNW, and Zürcher Fachhochschule für Angewandte Wissenschaften ZHAW.

The Master offers a well-balanced curriculum accompanied with advanced specialization courses for each chosen major. These courses include business, management and data handling to master the challenges demanded from tomorrow’s job market, and the Master thesis as independent applied research project. The program promotes critically reflection, assisting graduates in their further development throughout their professional careers.

The curriculum is divided into 3 blocks:

    • Central Modules (30 ECTS) which are related to business & entrepreneurship and data handling skills (Core Competence Modules) relevant to all Master students, and the “Cluster-specific Modules” relevant to the specializations within one cluster

    • Advanced specialization skills related to the particular majors (20 ECTS, five modules)

    • Master thesis project (40 ECTS) including the Literature Review and Research Proposal, a Preliminary Project and the Master's Thesis itself.

Le master représente le second diplôme universitaire après le bachelor et équivaut généralement à l'acquisition de 90-120 crédits ECTS.
