The Department of 化学 offers programs of course work and reSearch leading to the Master of Science degree in organic, 无机, 物理化学, 生物化学, and industrial chemistry; and the Ph.D. 在这些分支学科的化学.

化学硕士学位

Students entering the Department are required to take basic examinations during the week of registration in order to insure that they begin graduate work at a level commensurate with their background. The examination is based upon the subject matter covered by the following courses: general chemistry, 定性分析, 有机化学, 物理化学, 通过微积分来学习数学.

A candidate for the Master of Science degree must complete a minimum of thirty (30) semester hours in a program of study and reSearch approved by the chair of the Department in consultation with the student and his/her major professor. Minimum departmental requirements are the following:

  • Satisfactory completion of a minimum of twenty-four (24) semester hours of approved course work and six (6) semester hours of thesis reSearch, including for all students these required courses: CHE 412 (Instrumentation), CHE 421(高级无机化学), CHE 531(机械有机化学), CHE 532有机合成, CHE 541(热力学), CHE 542(量子力学). 生物化学专业, required course include Advanced Biochemistry (CHE 551 and CHE 552), 物理化学(CHE 541或CHE 542), 机械有机化学(CHE 531), Cell Biology or Genetics (BIO 506 or BIO 513), 物理生物化学(CHE 651), 选修课和研究.
  • A reading knowledge of French or German as evidenced by passing an examination or course given by the University, or upon petition by the student and written approval of the faculty. Substitution of computer programming with proficiency must be demonstrated by examination, or an acceptable grade in a graduate course in computer science. If a course in computer science is taken in lieu of a foreign language, that course cannot be used to satisfy the 30-hour minimum course requirement for the M.S. 学位.
  • 通过综合考试.
  • Passing a 期末考试 to be given after approval of the thesis by the reSearch advisor and may be written oral or both.
  • 论文被系里接受.

Masters of Science in Industrial 化学

The general requirements are the basic examination, 语文考试, 综合考试, 期末考试, and acceptance of the thesis are the same as those outlined under the heading 化学硕士学位. 另外, a candidate for the Master of Science degree in Industrial 化学 must complete a minimum of thirty-five (35) semester hours and reSearch approved by the chair of the Department in consultation with the student and the Director of the Industrial 化学 Program. Minimum Departmental requirements consist of the following:

Completion of twenty-nine (29) hours of approved coursework and six (6) of the thesis reSearch involving an internship in the chemical industry, or for students who do not participate in the internship program, completion of thirty-five (35) hours of approved course work and six (6) of thesis reSearch, including these required courses: CHE 412 (Instrumentation), CHE 421(高级无机化学), CHE 531(机械有机化学), CHE 532有机合成, CHE 541(热力学), CHE 542(量子力学), CHE 561(工业化学课题, CHE 562(化学家的放大), CHE 571(高分子化学), and an elective in Business 政府.

A medical industrial chemistry option may be satisfied by completion of the following additional courses:
