MS in Chemistry

The Department of Chemistry develops chemists who are able to think creatively and critically. The small faculty to graduate student ratio guarantees that students will have unmatched access to their advisors. The graduate program in chemistry provides experimental and theoretical training for students pursuing an MS in Chemistry.  The Science Building provides the student access to major scientific instruments, which are ideal for engaging in cutting-edge research. This program is designed for students who desire additional academic experiences preparing them for industrial, academic, or government careers.  Many of our graduates go on to pursue advanced degree programs at prestigious graduate, dental, and medical schools across the country.
