Faglig innhold

The master's thesis in molecular medicine can have a basal or medical direction. The thesis should have a scientific composition and be founded on applicable theory and literature within the specific subject. Current topics could be molecular mechanisms and epidemiological causes, diagnostic problems and therapeutic measures. It is a great advantage that the thesis be connected to the existing research activities at the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences. The principal supervisor is chosen from the scientific staff with permanent positions. The thesis should be a monograph or a scientific paper with concluding remarks. In both cases, the student should document a theoretical comprehension and a broad understanding of the methods that have been used. Students enrolled in the master's program must write the thesis in English. Details regulating the work with and assessment of the thesis are given in Guidelines for the Master's Thesis.


After completing the master's thesis the student should be able to

  • formulate a precise research problem
  • scientifically test and answer a research problem
  • prepare and analyze data from a study/experiment
  • master methods and techniques relevant for the research problem
  • present a research problem and discuss the results critically
  • by using relevant scientific literature
  • describe a scientific work in a clearly written report (master's thesis)
  • present the results, both in writing and orally, with sound language and precise statements.

Mer om vurdering

In addition to the written work, there will be an oral exam. The exam consists of a student presentation, followed by an oral examination. The examiners will set a preliminary grade on the written work before the oral exam. The grade given on the written work may be adjusted up to one grade after the oral exam. If the written work is given the grade F, no oral examination will be held.

In the event of a grade F (not passed), a new or revised thesis with significant changes may be submitted for assessment one more time. When the student has received a passing grade on the master's thesis, it is not possible to have a new thesis assessed within the same study program.
