Characteristics and objectives
The course forms graduates with solid cultural preparation in the main areas of Chemistry, adequate preparation to deal competently and autonomously with both professional activities and academic and industrial research. The training course includes two curricula: Chimica and Chemistry, which differ in the possibility to acquire just the Italian master title, or a double degree including the Italian title and the Master of Science in Chemistry from the 'Justus Liebig University Giessen' of Giessen, Germany, respectively. Up to 5 students, chosen on the base of their accomplishments, can enroll each academic year in the Curriculum Chemistry.
Both Curricula include a first set of compulsory courses in fundamental chemical sciences (physical, organic, inorganic, analytical chemistry) with the aim of completing the undergraduate level knowledge and introducing the student to the most advanced state of the art contents. Subsequently, the student chooses a specific field of specialization by selecting, with the presentation of the study plan, specific optional courses within a list of advanced courses. In this way, without the need for rigidly structured curricula, the students will be able to follow a specific training course built on the basis of their cultural and professional interests.
The Curriculum Chimica is completed with some free choice courses and with a final exam in the form of an experimental thesis to be held at the university or at companies and external bodies.
In the Curriculum Chemistry the student will spend the first semester of the second year at the partner University and to get the double degree title she/he must acquire 30 CFU at the partner University. The studies are then completed with a final exam in the form of an experimental thesis, which can be carried out both in Italy or at the partner University by extending of one semester the stay abroad.

Occupational opportunities
The Master Degree in Chemistry allows one to engage in research, production and control activities in public and private facilities. The main employment opportunities are in the industry (chemical, pharmaceutical, food, cosmetics, paper, tanning, electrochemistry and manufacturing in general), in analysis laboratories, in the areas of health, energy and cultural heritage conservation. The opportunities offered by the freelance profession are also expanding, especially in the areas of analysis, control and validation, environmental protection and civil protection. The Master Degree also provides access to the doctoral school in Molecular Sciences after an admission exam.
