The Department of Chemistry granted its first master’s degree in 1909 and the first Ph.D. in 1930. Specializations in biochemistry, organic, physical, inorganic and analytical are offered with extensive interdisciplinary research opportunities (e.g., bio/nano-science, particle science, green chemistry, polymer chemistry, chemical physics, health related biochemistry, chemistry-engineering, and genomics).
The Department presently offers the Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy degrees with a major in chemistry. The non-thesis Master of Science in Teaching degree is also offered with a major in chemistry.
