Program Leading to the Master of Science Degree in Applied Chemistry

(See additionally:  Requirements for all Chemistry Graduate Programs)

The Master of Science in Applied Chemistry provides advanced coursework within the field of chemistry to individuals holding a bachelor's degree who are working in industry or government in those fields and who are seeking further chemistry education for professional development. The organic chemistry and forensic chemistry areas of concentration are oriented toward practical methodology, issues, and applications relevant in government and industry research laboratories today.

Requirements for Admission

The admission criteria is the same as that required for students entering the Master of Science program in Chemistry. Entering students are expected to hold a bachelor's degree in chemistry or a related field regardless of their intended concentration track. All students must take the American Chemical Society of attainment exams in organic chemistry, physical chemistry, and inorganic chemistry or biochemistry after admission, but before the start of classes.
