The Graduate Degrees
The department offers graduate programs leading to both MS and PhD degrees in Chemistry.
The PhD is unique in that all of our doctoral students are required to participate in a semester-long internship program in industry or government labs. Graduate degrees are also available through interdisciplinary programs in materials science and engineering, and environmental and earth sciences.
Three types of master's degrees are offered: MS with thesis, MS with thesis substitute for students who are currently employed in industry, and MS with non-thesis.
The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry participates in several interdisciplinary programs which include special chemistry tracks leading to the PhD.
A detailed overview of our research activities are given in the Graduate Degree Options.
