The program is intended to extend the broad introductory curriculum which constitutes the B.S. requirements to the master’s level and help undergraduates get involved earlier and more extensively in research. At the graduate level, formal courses are kept to a minimum. The emphasis on the research experience and the development of facility with current literature are structured to prepare students for participation in doctoral programs.
Chemistry provides the opportunity for Bachelor of Science (B.S.) graduates to continue their study at the master’s level. The Master of Science (M.S.) curriculum is part of a five-year program in which a student typically earns the B.S. after four years.
