GRE minimum is 291. The Master of Science Degree is approximately a two year program and requires both course work and research. A student in an M.S. program who is in good standing with a grade point average equal to a B or greater may petition to transfer into the Ph.D. program upon approval of his/her M.S. committee and recommendation of the Graduate Committee.
The M.S. committee consists of the student's major professor and two other members. The M.S. Committee is responsible for advising the candidate concerning course work and research. The M.S. Committee is also responsible for the final examination of the candidate. In addition to a thesis, the M.S. candidate is also required to present a departmental seminar on the thesis topic.
In addition to fulfilling the minimum Graduate School requirements, a student must take one three-hour course in each of three of the four areas (inorganic, analytical, organic, and physical), excluding special topics and research courses. These courses must be graduate courses, 5000 and above. A student may also take nine credits of any combination of CHEM 5190, 5290, 5390, 5590, or 5790. One departmental seminar is required on the thesis research.
