M.S. in Chemistry Non-Thesis Track

Designed for students with relevant industry experience and individuals whose employment or other circumstances preclude them from doing a master's thesis.

In this program, you will:

•    Strengthen your knowledge in the basic areas of chemistry—inorganic, organic, physical, analytical and biochemistry

•    Become familiar with the recent advances in the chemistry field

•    Effectively communicate scientific information, both in writing and orally

•    Improve your ability to understand and apply scientific literature in scientific settings

•    Culminate by orally defending an exit exam

The Master of Chemistry Non-Thesis Track requires a total of 34 credits for the non-thesis track.
