University of Southampton
Instrumental Analytical Chemistry
Our programme is structured around a solid core comprising of three main analytical techniques - mass spectrometry, NMR spectroscopy and X-ray diffraction - each containing common themes (data collection, analysis and management). Supporting modules serve to embed themes of good laboratory practice, facility management and enterprise. The research project offers you the opportunity to explore any of the main themes directly or as part of a collaborative synthetic/analytical investigation.
MSc: UK bachelors degree with upper second-class honours or higher in biochemistry, physics, polymer science, environmental sciences, material science, mathematics or closely related discipline.
Typical modules include: Mass Spectrometry: Theory and Application; NMR Spectroscopy: Theory and Application; X-ray Diffraction: Theory and Application; Chemistry MSc Advanced Research Project; Chromatography: Theory and Application; Group Analytical Project; Ethics in Science; Engineering and Technology: Jekyll and Hyde.
Modules within the analytical chemistry masters programme make use of a range of learning teaching and assessment methods based around a core of lectures, practical experimentation (small group and individual), private research and study. As well as summative coursework assignments, many modules will also make use of formative coursework in the form of short reports and presentations. Formative development will be in the form of reflective, peer group and tutor-led exercises - both theoretical and practical. Group and team working are also a key component of the programme, some coursework being carried out in groups and the learning results presented to the class. A key theme throughout the programme is that of management of facilities, projects and people, which provides an alternative dimension to learning.
