Degrees Offered:

Master of Science in Chemistry

Format: Campus

Program Description:

Three concentrations are available within the program: the Separation Science Emphasis, Traditional General Chemistry Program Emphasis, and Teacher Education Concentration. The Separation Science Emphasis, the first of its kind in the Chicago area, is designed to train chemists for the largest subset of industrial analytical chemistry known as Separation Science. Highlighted in this emphasis are the studies of and research in gas and liquid chromatography and related technologies. Those planning careers in the pharmaceutical industry will be well prepared by completing this emphasis in their master’s degree program. The General Program Emphasis is a more broadly based program of study well suited for students intending to enter professional schools and to continue graduate work in chemistry. The new Teacher Education Concentration is designed for middle and high school chemistry teachers to earn master degree in chemistry with emphasis in the Chemical Education. Careers • Quality Control Chemist • Research and Development Chemist • Method Development and Validation Chemist • Pharmaceutical Science Chemist • Forensic Science Chemist • Food Science Chemist • Cosmetic Chemist • Pharmacologist • Environmental Science Chemist • Separation Scientist • Teacher/Instructor/Professor • Doctoral studies CORE COURSES All students must take at least one course in each of the four areas of the Core Courses: Analytical Chemistry CHEM-450 Gas Chromatography .....................................3 cr.
