Program

The Frontiers in Chemistry Master’s Program results from the creation of Université de Paris. The molecular Chemistry towards Life’ sciences developed on the campus Saint-Germain-de-Prés answers to the physical chemistry oriented towards nanoscience, surfaces and energy developed on the Campus des Grands Moulins…. The Master’s program is supported by high-level research laboratories with international reputation and network.

The main objective of the first year is to provide students with a strong background in the various aspects of molecular chemistry, physical chemistry and reactivity at the interfaces with materials, surface and life sciences. Theoretical knowledge acquired through tutoring and analysis of scientific articles is complemented by a 2 to 5 months internship. Through the choice of optional courses, students can prepare their second-year specialization. The second year of the Master is intended to specialize students’ capacities in electrochemistry, spectroscopies, environmental chemistry or molecular chemistry. Students must choose among four tracks, two optional teaching units and will perform a 6 months internship to complete the Master’s Degree.
