Master's Degree in Chemistry and Life Sciences



The Master's degree in Chemistry and Life Sciences is a national diploma.

The aim of the Master's degree is to train specialists, executives for economic sectors that generate high added value such as pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, fine chemistry, etc. capable of mastering all industrial aspects involved in R&D or production processes.

This master's degree fits in with the major focuses of the regional economic fabric such as the pharmaceutical industry (Delpharm, ALK Abello, Boiron, Sodia, etc.) hygiene and beauty (Soliance-Givaudan, Parchimy, etc.) or agro-industries ((LVMH, ARD, Champagne Céréales, Champagne Vranken, etc.) in tandem with the “Industries and Agricultural Resources” IAR Competitiveness Cluster.

The Chemistry and Life Sciences (CSV) Master's degree programme thus aims to integrate students from L3 Chemistry or Biochemistry studies from URCA and other universities as well as students who have done Pharmacy studies.

Skills acquired at the end of the training:

Molecular Chemistry studies will offer students theoretical and practical training in summary, in structural chemistry and in the field of biomolecular chemistry, enabling them then to either continue their studies as part of a doctoral thesis, or to move directly towards working life by becoming executives in chemical industries connected to R&D departments.

At the end of their training, the student should be able to:

  • Develop new strategies for accessing compounds of interest.
  • Master all the industrial extraction and analysis processes applied to natural compounds.
  • Design a new industrial process to develop active compounds.
  • Develop, optimise and validate analytical techniques for a raw material or an active compound.
  • Analyse and critique any document from the R&D sectors relating to the obtaining and characterisation of chemical species, supplying R&D with documentation on the obtaining and characterisation of chemical species (REACH, etc.)
