Objectives of the master program Infection Biology

The aim of the master’s program is an international study program for German and Argentinean students which provides a sound training for hands-on scientific questions with a high proportion of laboratory courses in infection research. In a networked world the binational study course should also contribute to enhanced academic science exchange with Argentina.


The study with the degree "Master of Science" (M.Sc.) prepares, among other things, for a career as a scientist in academia or as a manager in (research) companies or government agencies. The course forms the basis for further independent scientific research for promotions and for international doctoral programs (PhD) or professional activities, as the courses are entirely taught in English. Knowledge of the local language is offered as compulsory modules and contributes to international exchange in science and culture.
