Graduate Programs in Chemistry
Applicants for the Master of Arts or Master of Science programs in Chemistry or Biochemistry must possess, or be in close proximity to possessing, a baccalaureate degree which includes full-year courses in General and Analytical Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, Physical or Biophysical Chemistry, General Physics, and Mathematics through Integral Calculus. Applicants for the Master’s degree in Secondary Education that is correlated with Chemistry must have, beside the baccalaureate degree, at least a full year of General and Analytical Chemistry, College Physics and Mathematics. A GPA of 2.75 is required both overall and in the science courses. Certain of these requirements may be waived at the discretion of the department chair. Students with limited undergraduate course deficiencies may be admitted with the approval of the Chemistry faculty on condition that such deficiencies are corrected concurrently with their initial graduate course.
Applicants for the Clinical Chemistry program will normally have a bachelor’s degree in Chemistry, Biochemistry, Biology, or Medical Technology. Other undergraduate degrees may be acceptable if appropriate background courses in the sciences have been taken. The undergraduate transcripts of all applicants will be examined to determine if there are any deficiencies in background courses. An undergraduate GPA of at least 2.75, for all courses combined as well as for science courses, is expected for admission to the program.
