Program Advisor: John Gilbertson
This program prepares students for technical careers in industry, or for further study toward a more advanced degree.
A bachelor’s degree and departmental approval. Applicants with an undergraduate chemistry degree are expected to have completed the following courses (or their equivalent) with a grade of B or better: CHEM 333, CHEM 434, CHEM 351, 352,353, CHEM 461, 462, 463, and CHEM 441 or CHEM 471, 472, 473. A student with lower than B may be required to repeat that course as determined under advisement with the graduate program advisor. Students with a bachelor’s degree in another science field will choose an appropriate set of chemistry courses, in consultation with the Department’s Graduate Committee, to provide a chemistry foundation for graduate study.
Specific Test Requirements: Graduate Record Exam, General Test.
Supporting Materials: A statement of research interests and future goals, including identification of up to three potential faculty research advisors, must accompany application.
