The graduate program in chemistry is a thriving community of researchers that engage in cutting-edge science. The projects range from extra-planetary science to single-atom manipulation, to the development of therapeutics. The areas of focus are the interface of chemistry and biology, surface science, and materials.

The M.S. in Chemistry is for students seeking an education at an advanced level in chemistry. Each student must pass eight graduate-level courses, at least six of which must be formal classroom instruction. With the approval of the student's adviser, up to one-half of the coursework may be taken in related fields outside the department of chemistry.

Learning Objectives

  • Demonstrate proficiency of a range of graduate-level chemistry concepts.
  • Write, display information, and orally communicate chemical science, both for nonscientific and expert audiences.
  • Find, understand, and critically evaluate primary literature.
  • Understand the importance of responsible conduct in all aspects of research including, but not limited to, matters of safety, ethics, honesty, and integrity.
  • Execute laboratory techniques safely and skillfully.
