The Program
    The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry offers a Master of Science degree in Chemistry and a Master of Science degree in Chemistry with an option in Biochemistry. The MS degree in chemistry, available as a thesis option, comprehensive examination option and biochemistry option, is designed for students who wish to pursue a profession at a supervisory level, or where considerable independence and sophistication are required. The MS degree also serves the needs of students who wish to enter a Ph.D. program in chemistry or biochemistry with more training and education than a BS graduate. The programs contain a common core of coursework supplemented by intensive work in the student's area of specialization. The thesis option in either chemistry or biochemistry is encouraged over the comprehensive examination option. A wide range of active research programs are underway in the department.
Financial Support
     The department and the University have many opportunities for student financial support including: graduate assistantships (teaching and non-teaching), individual faculty research assistantships, Minority Access to Research Careers (MARC), Minority Biomedical Research Support (MBRS), Bridges to the Ph.D., and other University and systemwide graduate scholarship programs.
