Chemistry

The Department of Chemistry offers graduate programs leading to the Master of Arts (A.M.); the Master of Science (Sc.M.); a the Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degree.

Research in Chemistry stretches from the exploration of physical phenomena of individual molecules, to the creation of new molecules, to material science, and indeed to the foundations of life.  The Department of Chemistry reflects this profound importance and diversity by offering excellent research opportunities in areas including organic and inorganic chemistry, chemical biology, analytical chemistry, nanochemistry and theoretical and experimental physical chemistry.  In addition, graduate students have the opportunity to participate in interdisciplinary research in molecular biology, chemical engineering and the Institute for Molecular and Nanoscale Innovation.  The faculty student ratio is approximately 3:1 with most research groups numbering no more than six graduate students.
