Description illustration de l'articleChemistry is an experimental science requiring theoretical as well as practical knowledge and skills. The Chemistry Master’s program (M1 and M2, 1st and 2nd Master’s years) follows a three-year non-specialized Chemistry “Licence” (French for 1st, 2nd and 3rd Bachelor’s years , L1 L2 and L3) and aims to broaden those bases in order to develop the creative abilities of students as future scientists.
To take into account the increasing complexity and the constant evolutions of the field, a broad and transverse approach of the subject will be emphasized. All the master’s graduates will have to be familiar with the concepts and methods underlying the current developments of all the areas of modern chemistry, and to get acquainted with the necessary tools.

For example, they should master the current aspects of synthesis and the properties of all sorts of chemical compounds, as well as their implications for the industry.

A thorough survey of modern analytical methods and chemical reactivity completes these non-specialized courses, which will be a common-core syllabus at the start of the master’s program. An increasing specialization in the course of the two years will provide every student with a high-level training in the area he/she chose. The scientific objectives are defined for each project individually, and depend on its aim. Eventually, the graduate will be highly qualified in his specialty, as well as proficient in related specialties.

Meanwhile, the broad spectrum of chemistry covered by the courses will lead to widely different individual projects, thus guaranteeing the diversity of graduating students every year, in keeping with the variety of career openings.
