PhD in Chemistry

The Department of Chemistry offers courses of study leading to a Ph.D. degree with opportunities for research in seven traditional fields: analytical, environmental, radiochemistry, materials chemistry, inorganic, organic and bioorganic, and physical chemistry.

Our low student-to-faculty ratio assures you’ll benefit from individual guidance, and the breadth of faculty-led research provides access to excellent facilities and the latest instrumentation. The Department of Chemistry requires all graduate students in the PhD program to complete 28 semester hours of graded course work.

Graduate students must also take one three-credit core course in each of three divisions, two courses must be in a division outside their own.

  • Analytical
  • Physical
  • Inorganic
