Molecular Biology

Master-level studies involve specialized study in a field of research or an area of professional practice. Earning a master’s degree demonstrates a higher level of mastery of the subject. Earning a master’s degree can take anywhere from a year to three or four years. Before you can graduate, you usually must write and defend a thesis, a long paper that is the culmination of your specialized research.

Master Programme in Molecular Biology will result in a wide-ranging knowledge and understanding of the field of molecular biology. Graduates are prepared for careers in several aspects related to molecular cell biology, biomedical research and biotechnology.

Lithuania, officially the Republic of Lithuania is a country in Northern Europe, the largest of the three Baltic states. It is situated along the southeastern shore of the Baltic Sea, to the east of Sweden and Denmark. More than 90% of Lithuanians speak at least one foreign language and half of the population speaks two foreign languages, mostly Russian and English.
