Full Program Description

This program is designed for students who have earned a bachelor’s or a master’s degree in chemistry and who wish to earn a doctorate in chemistry degree. The program of study includes some course work but the primary emphasis is on the completion of an original research project, its articulation in a well-written thesis and its subsequent defense before a panel of department faculty. This is a full-time degree program that typically takes 5-6 years to complete. Financial support (teaching assistantships or research assistantships) is normally provided for students admitted to this program throughout their period of study who are found to be making good progress toward their degree. Applicants for this degree-granting program are expected to have an earned B.A., B.S., or M.S. in chemistry or to have completed the equivalent coursework with an overall GPA of 3.0 or better from an accredited college or university.
