M.Sc in Chemistry and Biochemistry
- Our department offers comprehensive programs of study in Chemistry and Biochemistry at the Graduate level.
- Our faculty members have active research programs in a variety of areas, including synthetic inorganic and organic chemistry, materials science, surface science, solid-state chemistry and medical biochemistry.
- Candidates must complete successfully at least three courses chosen from the available graduate offerings in the student's field or from related and cognate courses, with the approval of the Program Committee.
- The student may be required to take additional courses, as stipulated by the student's Master's committee.
- The Master's committee is chosen in the manner described under Master's Program Requirements. The final examination will take the form of an open seminar in the presence of the Master's committee. The examination will be open to the public.
Ph.D. in Chemistry and Biochemistry
- Students in the Ph.D. program will be required to complete an oral comprehensive examination within the first twelve months following admission into the Ph.D. program. The examination will take the form of a ten to a twenty-minute presentation of the student's research work to date, followed by a question and answer session in which the student's depth of knowledge of the field of research and the underlying chemical and/or biochemical principles will be examined.
- Each candidate will take a final oral examination in defense of the dissertation on the recommendation of the doctoral committee.
