With a Masters
at University College Cork (UCC)
a Bachelor of Science is as varied as the discipline itself. You may study the traditional natural sciences and become a Bachelor of Biology/Physics/Applied Mathematics etc. However the range has extended greatly in the past decades and there are now opportunites to become a Bachelor of Environmental Science, for example, which incorporates the areas of geography, environmental science, chemistry, biology, earth science, and physics, and may also include the study of maths and statistics to understand measurements and data. You may even incorporate a year of law in order to have an understanding of, say, environmental protection.
masters students: The world of science, along with the traditional disciplines such as Physics and Biology for example, has broadened significantly in the last 2 decades or so. This is reflected in Master’s programs as well, and one such new discipline is Analytical Science.
Analytical Science for Industry will provide you with a thorough grounding in all aspects of separation science and mass spectrometry, including a three-month internship. Some of the modules may have included: Principles of Analytical Science; Advanced Separation Science; Advanced Mass Spectrometry; Novel & Emerging Technologies, with a Research Project. This is a Master’s which typically leads to further PhD study, laboratory-based research or other science-related careers.
