The M.S. in Chemistry will develop a student's ability to integrate advanced chemistry knowledge and critical-thinking skills to effectively approach scientific problems grounded in chemistry. In addition, graduates will gain the ability to clearly and persuasively communicate advanced scientific ideas across scientific disciplines and to non-scientists alike.
The curriculum is designed to prepare graduates for successful careers in industry or chemistry education. It is anchored by four core courses covering fundamental chemistry concepts in thermodynamics, bonding, effective scientific communication and spectroscopy. These core courses are supplemented by 10 elective courses spanning all sub-disciplines of chemistry, including chemistry education.
