About

The Master of Science in Chemical Sciences (MSCB) is a thesis-based program with tracks in Chemistry and Biochemistry. The MSCB offers a flexible curriculum, individually tailored to the student’s background and research interests.

Overview

he program is 33-credit-hours of coursework with research opportunities in all areas of chemistry and biochemistry, from synthetic organic chemistry to enzymology. The MSCB will prepare students to think in an interdisciplinary fashion about problems in chemistry, biochemistry and many other related areas of study. This program is designed to allow students to complete course work and thesis research within two academic years.

Successful candidates will have an undergraduate grade point average of at least 3.0 (on a 4.0 scale) and will have completed requirements for the bachelor degree in a college accredited by a recognized regional accrediting association within the U.S., or in an equivalent institution outside the U.S. (accredited by a recognized accrediting agency). Adequately prepared applicants must demonstrate core competency as reflected by the record of undergraduate coursework in biology, chemistry, physics and mathematics, with a degree focus in one of these areas. The core includes 8 semester hours of physics with labs, 16 hours of general and organic chemistry with labs, 8-9 hours of math including calculus, and 8-20 hours of upper level chemistry and/or biochemistry and/or biology.

Adequately prepared applicants must demonstrate core competency as reflected by the record of undergraduate coursework in biology, chemistry, physics and mathematics, with a degree focus in one of these areas. An applicant who is deemed deficient in one or two courses by the Admissions Committee may be admitted into the program under the condition that the missing undergraduate courses be taken in addition to the graduate program requirements; these will not count toward the degree and are not eligible for the tuition waver.
