Key learning outcomes Characteristics of the study field/curriculum Consecutive master degree curriculum of Biology Chemistry curriculum is designed as a joint cross-border study field carried out together with the Faculty of Engineering and Natural Sciences at the Johannes Kepler University in Linz, Austria. Austrian counterpart has been considered a top-ranking institution in area of chemistry university education and research, on the other hand, Faculty of Science at USB in České Budějovice has fallen among the respected research schools in area of biological/life sciences. Both partners have successfully carried out over three last years the bachelor cross-border curriculum of Biological Chemistry. An advance in currently demanding interdisciplinary scientific areas markedly depends on a quality of education in more scientific/study fields. Nowadays, this is a case of modern Biology, Biochemistry and Chemistry. State-of-the-Art university education providing within the curriculum structure subjects of both currently topic biology and molecular biology as well as chemistry and biophysics.
