Chemistry Graduate Program

Overview of the Master's Degree Program

In addition to the Ph.D. degree, the Department of Chemistry offers the Master of Science (M.S.) degree for students who want a less extensive graduate program in chemistry. This degree program, usually completed in two years, omits the intensive course concentration required for the Ph.D. degree and requires a more modest research project and thesis. The M.S. is particularly attractive for students who do not plan a career in basic chemical research but who want to work in a closely related field.
