Driving Science, By Leading Change

Careers in laboratory science are constantly changing with new technologies and techniques. However, one thing remains unchanged - successful careers in clinical, pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and academic laboratories require fluency with instrumentation and the ability to interpret and analyze the data that it generates.

Students pursuing more traditional STEM Master of Science degrees are often narrowly trained in a single discipline, while students with a Professional Science Master degree sometimes lack broad scientific training. Bay Path’s MS in Applied Laboratory Science & Operations program bridges that divide.

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.

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 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.

Overview of Graduate Program

Students achieving M.S. degrees typically continue on as Ph.D. students here or elsewhere or find appropriate positions in education, business, or government. We offer three non-research Professional Masters degrees. The Professional Science Masters Degrees in Bioinformatics and in Biotechnology are both aimed at training students to work with businesses in the scientific contexts of the disciplines. The Professional Masters degree in Teaching (the MAT) is aimed at developing high-quality science teachers in secondary education.... [-]
