Get into the mysteries of chemical and biological processes in living systems

Degree programme objectives

The Biochemistry Bachelor's degree program prepares graduates who have knowledge of all areas of chemistry including biochemistry, inorganic, organic, analytical or physical chemistry, biology, and last but not least, are able to process data obtained from these two areas. The program is designed to gain a broad foundation of theoretical and practical knowledge based on the state of scientific knowledge, research and development in chemistry, biology and orientation in information on the structure, activity and reactivity of (bio) molecules. The individual specializations are then focused on the further development of assumptions in the field of concrete application in the direction of chemical and biochemical analytics and the field of biochemical processes and production (Analytical biochemistry), the expansion of qualification knowledge in general biology, microbiology, physiology and molecular biology (Biochemistry) or understanding of the chemical organization and biological data, including an overview of basic informatics disciplines (Bioinformatics).

  • Objectives

    The Biochemistry Bachelor's degree program prepares graduates who have knowledge of all areas of chemistry including biochemistry, inorganic, organic, analytical or physical chemistry, biology, and last but not least, are able to process data obtained from these two areas. The program is designed to gain a broad foundation of theoretical and practical knowledge based on the state of scientific knowledge, research and development in chemistry, biology and orientation in information on the structure, activity and reactivity of (bio) molecules.

  • Learning Outcomes

    After successfully completing his/her studies the graduate is able to:

    • to apply a broad base of theoretical and practical knowledge in the field of chemistry and biology
    • to apply basic laboratory skills in biochemical, chemical and biological methods
    • to analyse information obtained from laboratory processes
    • to apply basic knowledge in data evaluation and processing
    • routine work in biochemical and similar laboratories
    • to apply deeper knowledge in general biology, microbiology, physiology, and molecular biology
    • to apply knowledge in programming and working with databases
  • Occupational Profiles of Graduates

    The broader theoretical basis allows graduates to flexibly adapt to the requirements of the workplace and to master the methods and procedures used there. They have prerequisites for further development and specialization in the field of their particular application, both in the direction of chemical and biochemical analytics, as well as in the field of biochemical processes and production or in the acquisition and processing of information (chemical literature, chemoinformatics, bioinformatics, data processing). They can also be qualified help in research and development work. Graduates are preparing for routine work in biochemical and similar laboratories in industry and research institutes, as well as development and control workplaces of companies dealing with health and pharmaceutical issues, or they can find applications in the field of programming, database development, chemical and biological information processing. Their professional background will also enable them to be employed in management, marketing and dealership in the above-mentioned fields of expertise.

  • Goals of Theses

    The bachelor thesis presents the results of the experimental work of the student under the direction of the bachelor thesis supervisor. It is presented in non-disambiguable form (in solid plates) in the number of 2 specimens. At the same time, the student submits an electronic version of the thesis for publication on the university network. Separate work must be written clearly and comprehensibly, without grammatical and logical errors. The thesis must contain chapters according to the instructions given in "Dean's Decree No. 5/2014 (Guidelines for the elaboration of bachelor's, diploma and rigorous work at MU's Faculty of Science). The processing of the text itself (point 10e "Dean's measures") includes the following chapters: Introduction, Theoretical part containing the result of literary research and Aim of work; Experimental section containing Material and Methods, Results, Discussion, Conclusion, Literature, List of Abbreviations, or List of Appendices. The "Results and Discussion" chapters can be separate and linked in one chapter "Results and Discussion", based on the nature and results of the work. The recommended range of the bachelor thesis itself, including the first page of the theoretical part and the last page with the conclusion, is 20 to 30 pages.

  • Access to Further Studies

    A graduate of a Bachelor's degree program may, after fulfilling the conditions of admission, continue to study under Master's degree programs, particularly in the field of Biochemistry, Analytical Biochemistry, Proteomics and Genomics or Biomolecular Chemistry. They may also continue to study in the field of Bioanalytics - a laboratory worker who has obtained a qualification to perform a non-medical medical profession as a specialist in laboratory methods (Mgr.) Pursuant to Act No. 96/2004 Coll., § 26. To this end, this follow-up Master's degree is accredited to the Ministry of Health of the Czech Republic.
