Master of Science in Chemistry

The Master of Science in Chemistry degree program at Sam Houston State University is designed to train chemists for a career in business, industry or academics. This degree is also appropriate for students planning to continue into Ph.D. programs at other institutions.

The two-year degree program involves coursework in at least four of the following areas of chemistry: analytical, biochemistry, environmental, inorganic, organic, and physical; and an independent research project culminating in a written thesis. A non-thesis option is also available. There are active research groups in the Department of Chemistry in all of these areas.

The department has a small research mentor/graduate student ratio that produces close interaction between our students and faculty.
