Students who wish to pursue a more specialized course of study and become more competitive in their fields of employment may choose to get a Masters degree in a science field. These degrees can be obtained after undergraduate study, and generally take two to three years to complete. A Master of Science can generally be completed either in the classroom or through online study.

The question of what is an MSc in Chemistry can be answered by understanding how post-graduate science education is structured. Post-graduate education in chemistry is generally pursued by students who have an undergraduate degree in the same field. However, an Msc in Chemistry is often more specialized, allowing students to pursue a specific type or area in the field of chemistry.

Many top research and teaching positions require students to have at least an MSc in Chemistry in order to be considered. A Masters degree is also a gateway to all other types of post-graduate work, including a Doctoral degree in the field. Additionally, postgraduate students in chemistry often have access to equipment and facilities that are not available to those doing undergraduate work.

The cost of an MSc in Chemistry varies between institutions. These degrees generally take about two years to complete, so the cost of tuition should be calculated accordingly.

Most people with an MSc in Chemistry pursue careers in research, teaching, laboratory work, or medicine. The degree can also be useful for some engineers and people who work in industry, as well as people interested in certain areas of environmental science.

Apply for an MSc in Chemistry online at one of the many participating schools. Studying online has a number of benefits for people who live far from their preferred institutions and who prefer studying on their own schedule.

Many institutions in the United States and around the world offer Masters degrees in Biology. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
