The Department of Chemistry provides the programs for graduate students to complete the Master of Science degree in Chemistry to become professional chemists or to become professional secondary school/community college teachers. Both program tracks require students to finish 12 credit hours of core courses, three credit hours of seminar courses and nine credit hours of elective courses. In order to meet the total 30 credit hour requirement for graduation, students in traditional research track need to complete six credit hours on “thesis,” while those in teacher preparation track should finish six credit hours on “chemical educational project” on secondary school/community college education.
The Department of Chemistry also provides a course-based program for graduate students to complete a Master of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies with concentration in Chemical Education degree to be professional high school/community college teachers.
