The Chemistry program of Rose‑Hulman Institute of Technology offers two paths: Master of Science (MSCHEM) and a Master of Chemistry (MCHEM).



Two post-graduate degree programs are offered by the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology: the Master of Science in Chemistry (MSCHEM) degree, that requires a thesis and a publication, and the Master of Chemistry (MCHEM) degree, that does not require a thesis or a publication, but instead requires 12 credit hours of additional course work.  

A MCHEM student's plan of study is arranged on an individual basis through a joint agreement between the student and their academic advisor, who must be a member of the RHIT CHEM faculty.

Similarly, an MSCHEM degree student's plan of study is arranged by agreement between the student, the student's advisory committee chairperson, and the student's advisory committee.

The MSCHEM student's advisory committee must consist of at least (1) an RHIT CHEM faculty member serving as the major advisor who guides the student's thesis research, (2) a second RHIT CHEM faculty member, and (3) an RHIT faculty member from outside of the CHEM department.

Both degree programs seek to build upon the basic foundations established by the student's undergraduate course of study

The objective of the Chemistry program of Rose‑Hulman Institute of Technology is to prepare graduates for early career advancement in the field of Chemistry by building upon their undergraduate training with advanced coursework and concentrated study of problems and topics relevant to the field.
