MSc in Chemistry/Biotechnology


Program Description

The Department of Chemistry jointly with the Biotechnology Center offers a Master of Science (M.S.) degree for students seeking an education at an advanced level in chemistry/biotechnology.

The graduate program in Chemistry at Tufts University is large enough to foster stimulating interaction among colleagues and provide research opportunities at the frontiers of science, but small enough to have a very favorable student/faculty ratio. Formal requirements are minimized to allow students the flexibility to tailor their M.S. program to meet their individual needs.

  • 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.
