General Introduction

Jacobs University offers study programs according to the regulations of the European Higher Education Area. All study programs are structured along the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS), which facilitates credit transfer between academic institutions. The three-year undergraduate program involves six semesters of study with a total of 180 ECTS credits. The curricular structure follows an innovative and student-centered modularization scheme – the 3C Model – which groups the disciplinary content of the three study years according to overarching themes:

The first study year is characterized by a broad offer in disciplinary and interdisciplinary education. Students select three CHOICE modules from a variety of study programs.

In the second year, students take three in-depth, discipline-specific CORE modules. One CORE module can also be taken from a second, complementary discipline, which allows students to incorporate a minor study track into their undergraduate education.

In the fifth semester, the World Track provides students either with an extended internship or a study abroad opportunity at a partner university. Students may also opt to stay on campus and continue their undergraduate education, where they select specialization courses within their study program and pursue a project/research module including the Bachelor thesis.

Major Overview

The Medicinal Chemistry and Chemical Biology program provides a fundamental understanding of life and its processes, from the molecular to the macromolecular level, allowing the identification and exploitation of dietary and bioactive molecules. Topics will range from molecular docking, drug delivery and resistance, diagnostic agents and tools, to environmental and systemic impact with a view on hormonal and immune system responses. Your studies in Medicinal Chemistry and Chemical Biology will also comprise early research involvement. This program is based on an innovative, multidisciplinary approach encompassing life scientists, chemists, biophysicists, biotechnologists, and marine scientists who are addressing the major health challenges of mankind.
