Graduate Degree in Chemistry

A two-year Master's Degree in Chemistry is available in our department and involves course work in at least four of the following areas of chemistry: analytical, biochemistry, environmental, inorganic, organic, and physical; and independent research project culminating in a written thesis. A non-thesis option is also available.

There are active research groups in our department in all of these areas of chemistry. For a description of the areas and specific projects in which our faculty experiment, see a PDF document detailing our faculty's research (1.8 MB). We have a small research mentor/graduate student ratio that produces close interaction between our students and faculty. Our department's research facilities are split between the top two floors of the new Chemistry/Forensic Science building.

Teaching assistantships are approximately US $18,000 full time (20 hours per week) for the two long semesters, and approximately $2,500 for summer research. All students accepted in our graduate program in chemistry are supported by either graduate teaching or research assistantships.
