The Master of Science degree provides students with advanced training in chemistry and the analytical skills needed to process and critique complex chemical information. Students may take most of the required coursework in chemistry or may choose a biochemistry option, with some required courses in chemistry and a specialization in biochemistry.

About

The degree program mainly serves students in four categories: those seeking opportunities in the chemical industry requiring training beyond the baccalaureate level, fully employed chemists who wish to enhance their career potential, future teachers of high school or community college chemistry, and individuals contemplating more advanced graduate study.

Academic Requirements

You need the following GPA score:

Required score: 2.6

Applicants for graduate programs must have the equivalent of a bachelor’s degree with a minimum GPA equivalent to 2.6 on a US 4.0 grading scale. Admitted applicants typically have an undergraduate GPA of or better on a 4.0 scale. No exam grade should be lower than 4.5 (European grade scale) or D (American grade scale).

Your GPA (Grade Point Average) is calculated using the grades that you received in each course, and is determined by the points assigned to each grade (e.g. for the US grading scale from A-F).

General Requirements

The basic requirements for entry into the program are possession of a baccalaureate degree in Chemistry or Biochemistry, including a year of physical chemistry, and a GPA of at least 2.6 in upper division chemistry and biochemistry courses. Applicants not meeting the GPA requirement may still be accepted subject to receipt of acceptable letters of recommendation. The GRE subject test in chemistry or biochemistry is required. Applicants not having an undergraduate major in chemistry or biochemistry may be accepted into the program depending on the amount of undergraduate coursework required to remove deficiencies.
