The definition of the word “chemistry” has evolved over the course of its study and practice. Most agree that the term is a derivative of the word alchemy, which was an ancient practice that combined both mysticism and medicine. One who practiced alchemy was known as an alchemist.

The United States of America is a large country in North America, often referred to as the "USA", the "US", the "United States", "America", or simply "the States". American colleges are funded by "tuition" charged to the student, which is often quite expensive, very commonly reaching into the tens of thousands of dollars per year.

The Master's Degree in Chemistry is a two-year program intended primarily for individuals interested in advanced training in chemistry and related disciplines in preparation for doctoral programs or for careers in industry, government, or post-secondary school education. Students are expected to be well grounded in one or more of the program's five areas of specialization: Analytical Chemistry, Biochemistry, Inorganic Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, and Physical Chemistry. The Chemistry Department currently offers both a thesis and non-thesis option for the Chemistry M.S. degree. The non-thesis option is a seldom-utilized alternative route available for students currently employed full-time and requires department authorization. Basic requirements are the same as the thesis option, however it requires 36 hours of graduate credit and a problem report followed by a public lecture. This program organization ensures that all students develop research, writing and public speaking skills regardless of their area of concentration.... [-]

Master of Science in Chemical Engineering

Chemical engineering is a highly interdisciplinary field concerned with materials and processes at the heart of a broad range of technologies. Practicing chemical engineers are the experts in charge of the development and production of diverse products in traditional chemical industries as well as many emerging new technologies. The chemical engineer guides the passage of the product from the laboratory to the marketplace, from ideas and prototypes to functioning articles and processes, from theory to reality. This requires a remarkable depth and breadth of understanding of physical and chemical aspects of materials and their production. The expertise of chemical engineers is essential to production, marketing, and application in such areas as pharmaceuticals, high-performance materials in the aerospace and automotive industries, biotechnologies, semiconductors in the electronics industry, paints and plastics, petroleum refining, synthetic fibers, artificial organs, biocompatible implants and prosthetics and numerous others. Increasingly, chemical engineers are involved in new technologies employing highly novel materials whose unusual response at the molecular level endows them with unique properties. Examples include environmental technologies, emerging biotechnologies of major medical importance employing DNA- or protein-based chemical sensors, controlled-release drugs, new agricultural products, and many others....

MS in Chemistry

The Chemistry Department offers students the opportunity to study in the traditional areas of chemistry as well as in the growing interdisciplinary areas of biochemistry, environmental chemistry, and materials chemistry. Students work closely with their faculty mentor but have wide opportunities to interact with faculty in other disciplines including geology, physics, materials/mechanical engineering, and biology.

Students specialize in one area of chemistry, taking their courses, exams and performing research in that area.

Each student has a research adviser chosen by the student based on his or her research interests and the faculty member's availability of funding and space. This decision is typically made in the first year, though some students come to the University specifically to work with a given faculty member. This is a mutual decision and the student should have discussions with several faculties before an adviser is proposed. The selection of an adviser is an important decision since the adviser helps students with course selection and guides them in the development of a viable research program.... [-]

MSc in Chemistry - Program Overview

The master of science degree in Chemistry is offered on a part-time or full-time basis. The program options are designed to fill the needs of both the practicing chemist in the greater Rochester industrial community and the full-time graduate student.

The department of chemistry has research- and teaching-oriented faculty, as well as excellent equipment and facilities, that enable full-time graduate students to carry on a program of independent study that develops the ability to attack scientific problems at the research level. The research can result in either a thesis or a project report.

Through coursework and research experience, the program strives to increase both the breadth and depth of the graduate student's background and to provide an opportunity for the student to attack scientific problems on his or her own initiative with minimal supervision.... [-]

The MS program offers thesis and non-thesis tracks to prepare individuals for distinctive career or professional paths. All students take core courses and comprehensive examinations in the fields of analytical, inorganic, organic, and physical chemistry.

MS Coursework

Coursework must include a minimum of five graduate-level courses; at least four of the courses must be core courses; at least three must be offered by the Chemistry Department. At least two graduate-level courses must be taken outside the subdiscipline of the student and in at least two other subdisciplines.

MS Comprehensive Examinations

MS degree candidates must pass four comprehensive examinations in the fields of analytical, inorganic, organic and physical chemistry. These examinations are offered (over a period of several days) in fall, spring, and summer; announcements are posted on the Departmental bulletin boards. When prepared (usually after completion of the appropriate graduate course), a student should indicate his or her intention to take any two or all four of the examinations within the specified time period. A student may be excused from an examination if he or she has performed well in a related course(s) completed within the past year. A student who fails one or more of the comprehensive examinations may repeat the exam(s) at the next scheduled examination period. If the student fails a second time, no further opportunity to take an examination is permitted.... [-]
