Courses and Modules for Master's Students
The PSC, in coordination with the University of Zurich, the University of Basel and ETH Zurich, offers students the choice of two specialized Master's course modules and more than 100 plant science courses from the three universities. Students may build these courses into their personally-tailored curriculum, counting them towards degree completion requirements at their home university.
Please note that the PSC does not offer a free-standing Master's program. To be eligible to register for the PSC Master's modules, students must first be accepted into and enrolled at one of the 6 affiliated Master's programs listed below.
Students may acquire up to 30 ECTS (in accordance with the regulations of their home Master) through PSC Master's courses outside their home Master. The courses are counted as mandatory elective courses (Wahlpflichtkurse) towards the Master's degree.
- 'Challenges in Plant Sciences' (Colloquium), 2 ECTS, each fall term
- 'Sustainable Plant Systems' (Seminar and online course), 4 ECTS, Fall 2018
- 'Plant Response to Stress' (Seminar and online course), 4 ECTS, Fall
- Learn about the professional codes of responsible conduct in research
