Program Description

The mission of the Department of Chemistry is to provide students with an educational environment that will stimulate their intellectual curiosities, enhance and develop academic and professional skills in Chemistry, promote a sense of self-assurance and discipline, and instill a dedication to the advancement of science.  Students in the MS Chemistry program will receive specific training in the use of state-of-the-art instrumentation, learn new laboratory skills, and develop knowledge of the creativity, methods, and processes involved in designing, carrying out, and reporting results of scientific research while participating in a faculty-directed project on campus or in cooperative education or internship opportunities off campus.  The program features small class sizes that ensure students receive individual attention from the instructor.  Research opportunities are available in organic, inorganic, physical, analytical, computational, and biochemistry-related projects.  Our MS level graduates are well-prepared for traditional careers as chemists or for entry into a Ph.D. program, while some graduates pursue other professions such as pharmacy, medicine, biotechnology, or teaching.
