Chemistry, B.S./M.S.

Return to the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry 

The combined Bachelor’s/Master’s degree program allows highly motivated students to earn a bachelors’ degree and master’s degree in chemistry in five years. The master’s component will be based on the thesis program option of 30 required credit hours. The combined  program allows up to nine hours of 5000 level undergraduate courses to count towards the master’s degree. The ability to count these courses makes it possible for students to complete the master’s degree in one additional year as opposed to the more typical two or more years usually required for a master’s degree. The typical undergraduate student will apply to the Graduate School for admission to the combined program at the end of the sophomore year or the beginning of the junior year. A minimum of 60 hours of completed undergraduate course work is required in order to apply for admission. Because of the rigor and pace of this program, a minimum of a 3.4 undergraduate GPA is required for admission. Students interested in the combined B.S./M.S. should contact the Graduate Advisor or any faculty member of the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry for more information concerning the program.
