The School of Molecular Sciences at Arizona State University takes an innovative approach to training MS students that teaches them to be successful independent scientists in an increasingly post-disciplinary scientific world where the boundaries between the traditional chemical disciplines are rapidly disappearing. After graduation, many of our students have gone on to professional schools and careers in research, medicine and other health science fields.
Biochemistry contributes to solving a broad range of scientific problems in fields like energy, disease diagnosis and treatment, and materials design and production. The Biochemistry - Medicinal Chemistry MSc program from Arizona State University is designed for students who are in the final year of their Bachelor of Science degree in chemistry, biochemistry, biochemistry (medicinal chemistry), or molecular biosciences and biotechnology, who want to enhance their background in chemistry and biochemistry before entering schools of medicine, pharmacy and other health sciences.
Professionals with training achieved in pursuit of a graduate degree in chemistry or biochemistry will have opportunities in five general areas: industry (R&D, quality control, etc.), academia (high school and higher education), government (research, policy, etc.), non-profit (policy, public education, etc.), and entrepreneurship (consulting, start-ups, etc.). In addition to specialized technical skills, graduates will possess high-demand skills like critical thinking, teamwork and collaboration, time management and many other vital skills.
