Program Information

Degrees Offered:

Chemistry and Biochemistry

Format: Campus

Program Description:

Because graduate education in chemistry and biochemistry is primarily research-oriented, there are no formal departmental course requirements in the graduate program. However, it is expected that each graduate student will take graduate-level courses in areas that are relevant to their field of specialization. Entering students who have deficiencies in specific areas of chemistry or biochemistry (inorganic, organic and physical), as revealed by preliminary examinations, take appropriate courses to correct these deficiencies.
