The University of Wyoming's Chemistry Department offers graduate degrees for students who desire to expand their knowledge beyond the 4 year Bachelor level. Our Ph.D. program is a research degree in advanced chemistry that prepares our students for careers in academia or as leaders in industry. A Master's degree is not required; students may enter directly into the Ph.D. program.
A student must take one 3 hour graduate course (5000 and above) in each of the five areas (analytical, biological, inorganic, organic, and physical), excluding special topics, tool courses 5130, 5320, 5760, and research courses.
A student may also take 12 credits of any combination of CHEM 5190, 5290, 5390, 5590, or 5790.
In the area selected as a major, the student will take the following as a minimum:
1.) Analytical - 5250 plus 9 hours of graduate level analytical chemistry courses;
2.) Biological - any three graduate level biological chemistry courses;
3.) Inorganic - 12 hours of graduate level inorganic chemistry courses;
4.) Organic - 5320, 5330, and 5340;
5.) Physical - any three graduate level physical chemistry courses.
Students must obtain satisfactory performance on a series of written major field cumulative examinations, including special topics.
