About

The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry offers graduate study leading to the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees at North Dakota State University. The department also participates in the interdisciplinary Ph.D. program in Cellular and Molecular Biology.

Overview

At the start of the first year of study, entering graduate students take entrance examinations in chemistry and biochemistry, as well as analytical, inorganic, organic, and physical chemistry. The graduate student progress committee uses these exams for advisory purposes in recommending course work during the first year. As a consequence, programs are individually tailored to the needs of each student.

Learning outcomes

The chemistry, Biochemistry at North Dakota State University, and molecular biology of plant, animal, insect, and microbial systems are studied through advanced course work and research. Selection of the area of emphasis depends on the interests of the student. Typically, course work is completed in one to one-and-a-half years for M.S. candidates, and two years for Ph.D. candidates, leaving later years for full-time thesis research. The typical time to complete a graduate degree averages three years for the M.S. degree and approximately five years for the Ph.D.
