The Department of Chemistry at the University of Cincinnati offers courses of study leading to the MS degree with opportunities for research in all major sub-disciplines: biochemistry, analytical, inorganic, organic, physical and theoretical/computational chemistry. 


The 4:1 student-to-faculty ratio assures students of individual guidance, yet the total size of the department provides excellent research facilities, as well as opportunities for collaborative and interdisciplinary study.

The Chemistry program of study offered by the University of Cincinnati provides a good balance between formal course work and actual research experience with special emphasis given to preparing students for life after graduate school. First-year students select a research adviser before taking Introduction to Research in the winter, providing a smooth transition from the initial course work to the research phase of their graduate program. Regular departmental colloquia feature speakers from other universities and industrial and government laboratories discussing current research in chemistry. Students also participate in a weekly seminar program, gaining experience in presenting and discussing their own research. Students are encouraged to present their research at local, regional, national and international meetings, as well as publish their research findings in peer-reviewed journals.
