MASTER OF SCIENCE IN CHEMISTRY (GS30)
Dr. Michael Norton
Byrd Biotechnology Science Center 241K
- AREAS OF EMPHASIS OFFERED:
- 32 credit hours with a thesis and 36 credit hours non-thesis.
- NORMAL TIME TO COMPLETE FOR FULL-TIME STUDENT:
- 2 years.
- PROGRAM HIGHLIGHTS:
- In addition to the formal curriculum and program requirements, M.S. students in Chemistry are offered many opportunities to familiarize themselves with the wide-range of state-of-the-art instrumentation, work on cutting-edge, cross-disciplinary projects and participate in professional conferences. Because of the Chemistry Department’s small size, graduate students are compelled to interact with faculty outside their immediate research area. This provides exciting opportunities for our students to broaden their graduate experience.
- PROGRAM OBJECTIVES:
- The program is intended primarily for individuals interested in advanced training in chemistry and related disciplines in preparation for doctoral programs or for careers in industry, government, or post-secondary school education. The thesis option (which is the preferred route), demonstrates that you are capable of pursuing a program of original and independent research, that you can formulate and carry out a research project, and that you can report on the project in a proper scientific manner.
