Biomedical Sciences: Infectious Diseases at Vrije Universiteit

Do you want work at the intersection of human biology and molecular biology? Are you interested in the interventions and technologies that can impact (public) health?

 

Then this is the Master’s programme for you. Your Master’s degree in Biomedical Sciences enables you to choose from a variety of specialisations that focus on the biology of human health and disease. In your second year, you can decide whether to pursue a research  career, or put your knowledge to work more directly in society.

Biomedical Sciences: Infectious Diseases

The Master's in Biomedical Sciences is a two-year, full-time programme

 

You will start the programme with a research specialisation in Immunology, Infectious Disease or Neurobiology. 

 

After the first year of research, you can make your degree your own by choosing either a future in research, or in a field more directly tied to society. Those latter fields include International Public Health, Science Communication, Science in Society or Education – Teaching Biology (Dutch only).

 

The societal specialisations will make you well prepared and well equipped for a scientific function that lies outside the standard domain of laboratory research.

 

The programme’s structure ensures that you will emerge as a specialist in one or two specific disciplines within the biomedical sciences.

 

The programme consists of:

  • Several specialisations, each including compulsory courses (12-18 EC)
  • Three compulsory courses (total of 9 EC)
  • Elective courses (nr. of EC depends on combination of specialisations)
  • First internship (30 EC)
  • Second internship (30 EC)
  • Literature thesis (9 EC)

 

Courses form half of the Biomedical Sciences programme. For the other half, you must conduct your own research. There is plenty of scope for practical work, giving you the opportunity to use the very latest research methods and equipment. You can also select a work placement in policymaking, education or communication, depending on your chosen specialisation.

 

Summary

With a specialisation in Infectious Diseases, you gain a broad understanding of the biology of pathogenic organisms and the interaction between pathogens and their hosts.

 

You will gain the ability to conduct scientific research in the field of medical microbiology and to critically assess the results of microbial research. You will also choose a specialisation in one of the subjects within the field of infectious diseases.
