The chemistry graduate program has been designed to provide a solid background in the area of specialization and emphasize the acquisition of skills which will enable students to obtain further knowledge as required in their research, and later, in their professional careers. For this reason, the graduate degree programs are research oriented, and seminar attendance and familiarization with the chemical literature are considered important aspects of the program. The course requirements are comparatively light although a wide variety of intermediate and advanced courses in related areas are offered. Students are encouraged to take courses in related areas, such as physics, biology and computer science, according to their research interests.
