This is a research-based master’s program aiming to (i) provide a strong foundation in advanced chemistry and a high degree of competence in original research; and (ii) cater to students who seek a master’s degree as pre-requisite for a Doctorate degree, increased competence in teaching and research at the tertiary level, or preparation and advancement in industrial settings that require research in the professional practice of chemistry.
Undergraduate pre-requisite is a B.S. Chemistry degree or its equivalent obtained from a recognized institution of higher learning.
The M.S. Chemistry program requires 32 units, broken down as follows: required subjects (20 units), electives (6 units), and M.S. thesis (6 units).
