Case Western Reserve University
The Department of Chemistry at Case Western Reserve University strives to provide a world-class program of research and coursework for pursuit of MS or PhD in Chemistry. Our research can be catagorized into two main foci, Chemical Biology and Energy and Materials. Research projects and courses can be found in areas such as, analytical, biochemistry, bioinorganic, bioorganic, biophysical, biosynthesis, catalysis, catalysis energy, chemical biology, computational, electrochemistry, energy, environmental, functional nanomaterials, functional polymers, inorganic, main group, materials, medicinal, nanoscience, nanostructures, natural products, NMR, ogranometallic, organic, organic electronics, organometallic, pharmacology, photochemistry, physical, polymers, solar energy converstion, spectroscopy, structural biology, and synthesis.
The MS program is designed to equip students with a strong foundation for a career in chemistry, areas allied with chemistry, and chemical management. To accomplish this mission, the department offers lecture and laboratory courses, seminars, and research experience.
The PhD program is designed to equip students with a strong foundation for a career in chemistry, areas allied with chemistry, and chemical management. To accomplish this mission the Department offers courses, colloquia, and, most importantly, research programs guided by a faculty mentor in the fields of organic, biological, analytical, physical, and inorganic chemistry. Mentorship of PhD students during their maturation from apprentice to independent researcher is a major responsibility of faculty. During their training, students acquire technical proficiency in a focused area of expertise as well as a broad base of problem-solving skills and exposure to interdisciplinary science. This prepares them to enter the job market with the flexibility demanded by industry and academia.
