The department offers the Master of Science (thesis or nonthesis) and Doctor of Philosophy degrees with a major in chemistry and specialization in biochemistry, analytical, organic, inorganic, or physical chemistry. The Chemistry program is offered at University of Florida.


The nonthesis degree Master of Science in Teaching is also offered with a major in chemistry. New graduate students should have adequate undergraduate training in inorganic, analytical, organic, and physical chemistry.  The Chemistry program is offered at University of Florida.

Key facts:

  • Normally this will include as a minimum a year of general chemistry, one semester of quantitative analysis, one year of organic chemistry, one year of physical chemistry, and one semester of advanced inorganic chemistry. Additional courses in instrumental analysis, biochemistry, and advanced physical and organic chemistry are desirable. 
  • Deficiencies in any of these areas may be corrected during the first year of graduate study. Such deficiencies are determined by a series of placement tests given prior to registration, and the results of these tests are used in planning the student’s program. Doctoral candidates are required to complete at least 9 semester credits of courses specified by the division of the Chemistry Department in which they choose to specialize, as well as at least 9 semester credits of out-of-major-division courses. 
  • There are some minor restrictions on courses that may be used to meet this requirement. Additional courses may be required by the student’s supervisory committee or major professor.
