MA in Chemistry

Course Requirements

A minimum of eight graduate-level semester courses (32 credits) in chemistry, at least five of which are non-research, is required for the MA degree. Of the five non-research courses, two must be outside the candidate’s major area of specialization, and at least four must be at the 600 level or above. Two courses acceptable for graduate credit in mathematics or natural sciences other than chemistry may be substituted for chemistry courses. In conjunction with their advisors, candidates make specific non-research course selections based on relevance to their chosen area of specialization.
