Program Requirements

Master of Science (M.Sc.)

The M.Sc. degree requires a research-based thesis (18 credits) and completion of 13 credits of coursework with a B+ (76%) average or higher. The required Chemistry Seminar provides 1 credit, and the remaining 12 credits may be obtained from an array of courses.

Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.)

The Ph.D. degree is based on substantial original research conducted under the supervision of a faculty member of the Chemistry graduate program. Ph.D. students must submit their research in the form of a thesis and are not required to complete coursework unless specified by their supervisory committee, or as a condition of admission. Within 12 months of registering in the Ph.D. program (or 24 months if entering with only a B.Sc.), students are required to present a research proposal and pass a comprehensive oral examination designed to assess the student's breadth of knowledge in the general subject area(s) of the proposed research.
