The Ph.D. program includes the four traditional fields of analytical, inorganic, organic and physical chemistry. Students can pursue concentrations in emerging contemporary research fields such as computational chemistry, materials chemistry, and homogeneous or heterogeneous catalysis. Our M.S. program also offers industrial chemistry in addition to the areas above.
New frontiers in chemistry often incorporate two or more traditional areas, and your advisors can help you design unique interdisciplinary study opportunities. A wide variety of research programs are available including:
- Biomedical and pharmaceutical chemistry
- Computational chemistry
- Homogeneous or heterogeneous catalysis
- Mass spectrometry
- Materials chemistry
- Molecular dynamics and kinetics
- Molecular spectroscopy
- Novel instrument design and development
- Synthesis (inorganic and organic)
