The Chemistry curriculum at Furman University is part of a five-year program in which a student typically earns the B.S. after four years.


The student may receive graduate credit for certain courses completed during the fourth year, but must earn a B.S. before formal admission to the graduate program, normally at the beginning of the fifth year.

All M.S. degree candidates must present a thesis based on approved research.

The program is intended to extend the broad introductory curriculum which constitutes the B.S. requirements to the master's level and help undergraduates get involved earlier and more extensively in research. At the graduate level, formal courses are kept to a minimum. The emphases on the research experience and the development of facility with current literature are structured to prepare students for participation in doctoral programs.

Although the Chemistry program has been organized to specifically benefit students who earn the B.S. degree at Furman University, students from other institutions with strong undergraduate credentials may be considered for admission.
