  3. Graduates will be prepared to continue their education in pursuit of a doctorate or to enter the workforce. 

Accelerated BS/MS Program in Chemistry

Goals

  1. Students will obtain a broad knowledge in the four major areas of chemistry.
  2. Graduates will conduct research in a narrow part of one of the above.
  3. Graduates will be prepared to continue their education in pursuit of a doctorate or to enter the workforce.

Application Process

All applications for Fall admission to Chemistry must be submitted by April 1, and should include the following components, uploaded within the application form:

  1. Unofficial/Official transcripts describing all post-secondary work. All official transcripts will be required if admitted.
  2. A letter of intent describing your reasons for choosing our program, and how your personal strengths and goals align with your expectations of the program.
  3. Three letters of recommendation, submitted through the application system, from professionals in the sciences or mathematics attesting to your potential to succeed in a graduate chemistry program.

Applications for the BS/MS program should be submitted directly to the Chemistry Department, and should also include a summary of current courses and expected grades. Applications for the MS programs should be submitted to the graduate school. These include submission of GRE scores and payment of a processing fee.
