This is a non-thesis
course work based master’s program which aims to (i) provide a strong theoretical and practical foundation in advanced chemistry, without the typical emphasis on research leading to the publication of a thesis; and (ii) cater to students who seek a graduate degree for career or position advancement, increased competence in teaching or industrial settings, or other purposes related to 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 Master of Chemistry program requires 35 units, broken down as follows: required subjects (17 units), electives (15 units) and a master’s project (3 units). In addition, the student is required to pass the comprehensive examinations.
