The Department of Chemistry at the Rutgers University-Newark welcomes your interest in our Chemistry graduate program. The Department offers a number of distinct advantages for those seeking an M.S. or Ph.D. degree in chemistry, either on a full-time or part-time basis.


The goal of the Chemistry M.S. Program from Rutgers University is to provide students with professional knowledge and technical skills above the B.S. level which will enhance their career potential and opportunities for advancing in their field.

The structure of the M.S. program is geared to suit the needs of a part-time student who is already employed in industry or education.

Two tracts towards the M.S. degree are offered:
