2nd year speciality Master ‘Frontiers in Chemistry’

The Master Specialty ‘Frontiers in Chemistry’ benefits from a dynamic and synergic collaboration of the well-known French Universities Paris Diderot and Paris Descartes. It is intended to provide a high level research-oriented training in Physical, Molecular, Theoretical and Analytical Chemistry at the frontiers of Biology, Nanosciences and Energy.

The Master provides scientific training in various particularly promising topics dealing with new and exciting upcoming technologies and applications. Modern innovative teaching strategies such as individual tutorships, long research internships, as well as bringing together students from various countries will support the formation of qualified researchers. Scholarships for foreign students are open for application.

The language of teaching and exchange during this year is English. All reports and exams (written and oral, including the master thesis) are performed in English. In the beginning of September a Summer School is organized each year in the forest of Fontainebleau, bringing together all Master students and many Alumni. The first semester is organized around four majors, one to be chosen by the student:

  • Physical Chemistry for Nanosciences
  • Biologically-oriented Molecular Chemistry
  • Analytical Chemistry
  • Molecular Modeling and Applied Spectroscopy

The second semester will be entirely devoted to a 6 months research project.
