The Department of Chemistry eagerly accepts applications from students seeking a Ph.D. degree. While a research-based M.S. degree is offered, students applying to the Ph.D. program have the highest priority for admission, and it is not necessary to obtain an M.S. degree prior to earning a Ph.D. degree. We also offer a coursework M.S. degree for researchers in academia or industry who wish to continue their education.
