About this course
The Chemistry Department currently offers graduate programs leading to either the M.S. or Ph.D. in analytical, inorganic, organic, or physical chemistry. In recent years about eight students per year have received the Ph.D. In the Chemistry Department, courses are offered in inorganic chemistry, organometallic chemistry, physical inorganic chemistry, synthetic organic chemistry, physical organic chemistry, heterocyclic chemistry, advanced analytical chemistry, optical spectroscopy, mass spectrometry, electrochemistry, thermodynamics, quantum chemistry, and polymer chemistry.
An undergraduate major in an appropriate field, minimally with course work in the four classic subdisciplines of chemistry (analytical, inorganic, organic, and physical). This is most commonly satisfied with a B.A., B.S., or equivalent degree in chemistry. Applicants with prior research experience are preferred. Satisfactory scores on the Graduate Record Examination general (aptitude) section is required
