The extent of the Master's Programme in Integrative Plant Sciences is 120 credits (ECTS), to be completed in two years of full-time studies. The degree consists of 80 credits of advanced studies and 40 credits of other (elective) studies from this or other programmes. The advanced studies consist of joint courses (20 credits), two alternative study modules (30 credits) and the Master's thesis (30 credits).
With your choices of courses, you can deepen your expertise in particular areas of integrative plant sciences. Your degree can thus be tailored depending on your aspirations, whether you want to be a university researcher, entrepreneur, or environmental/agricultural consultant. You can also pick individual courses from any module to your elective studies. However, each module is a coherent entity so we recommend taking all the courses in a module.
