The Chemistry Department offers MS degrees in chemistry in all four major divisions in chemistry: analytical, inorganic, organic, and physical chemistry. The program requires 30 credit hours of a combination of core courses and thesis research. Students are required to successfully complete three credit hours of each of all four core courses. The students must pass a comprehensive exam in the division of their thesis concentration. They are also required to conduct thesis research, write it, present it in a seminar, and defend an oral exam. All graduate level and special topics courses are offered in the evenings.
