With an emphasis on Chemistry, HIMS staff contributes to various Master's programmes at UvA's Faculty of Science and beyond:
This is a joint degree programme of the University of Amsterdam and Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. Graduates receive a diploma accredited by both universities. There are several different specialisations or 'tracks':
Atomic Scale Modeling of Chemical, Physical and Biological Systems (ATOSIM)
This Master's programme is designed for excellent students, both Dutch and foreign. Selected students are eligible for a grant via the EU Erasmus Mundus programme. ATOSIM provides a high-level qualification in the rapidly expanding field of computer modeling in physical, chemical and bio-molecular sciences.
The MA programme in Conservation and Restoration of Cultural Heritage introduces students to the theory and practice of conservation. It lasts two years and is followed by a two-year postgraduate track, leading to an (inter)national qualification as a conservator-restorer.
This Master's programme builds on a range of scientific backgrounds and disciplines. Students are trained in applying specialist knowledge in a forensic context, whether as an researcher at the university, a forensic expert, or as a forensic advisor.
The UvA is internationally renowned for its physics and astronomy research. This Master's programme focuses on both fundamental research and its applications. It is a joint degree programme of the University of Amsterdam and Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam.
