M.Sc. Microbiology is a postgraduate course in microbiology. It is a discipline related to investigation of living system and their relationship to the environment. The duration of this course is 2 years divided into four semesters. Microbiology is a branch of biology that is focused on bacteriology, mycology and virology among other fields. Being a postgraduate microbiology course, the objective of this course is to produce intellectual and proficient microbiologists. It is done by this course through enhancing the abilities and skills of students for application of microbiology theories and expertise in the live problems faced by industry. The field of Microbiology covers many others such as Bacteriology, Virology, Mycology and Parasitology and medical microbiologists identify the agents of infectious diseases & devise ways to combat them. They also track down and identify new pathogens. While biology is the study of living beings as a whole, microbiology is concentrated on microscopic organisms. Bacteria, fungi, protists, and, in some cases, viruses are part of the organisms studied. This field also examines nucleic acid in the form of DNA or RNA sequences and mainly observes cultured microorganisms. Some programs may allow specializations in your degree such as industrial, environmental, or medical microbiology.

Public health microbiologists try and control the spread of diseases by monitoring water and food supplies. Agricultural microbiology is focused on the health of crops, increasing yield and soil fertility. Microbial ecologists study the habitats of microorganisms to determine their contribution to the chemical cycles in soil and water; they also study the effects of pollution on the same, and develop methods to use microorganisms to combat pollution. Food and dairy microbiology prevents microbial spoilage of consumables, fights food borne transmission of diseases, and also makes food like cheese, yoghurt and wine.
With a degree in microbiology, you can get opportunities in various fields like healthcare organizations, forensic science laboratories, environmental organizations, higher education institutions, food and drink, publicly funded research organizations, pharmaceuticals and many other industries.
In the medicine and healthcare field, your work is usually associated with prevention & treatment of illnesses linked with microbes.
