Chemistry and Applied Chemistry

Program Description


The Department of Chemistry offers MS (thesis and non-thesis options) in Chemistry and PhD degrees in Applied Chemistry. In addition, interdisciplinary MS and PhD degrees are also offered in Geochemistry, Hydrological Sciences and Engineering, Materials Science, Nuclear Engineering and Quantitative Biosciences and Engineering. 

Prerequisites

A candidate for an advanced degree in the Chemistry program should have completed an undergraduate program in Chemistry which is essentially equivalent to that offered by the Department of Chemistry at the Colorado School of Mines. Undergraduate deficiencies will be determined by faculty in the Department of Chemistry through interviews and/or placement examinations at the beginning of the student’s first semester of graduate work.

WICHE

All graduate degree programs in the Department of Chemistry have been admitted to the Western Regional Graduate Program (WICHE). This program allows residents of Alaska, Arizona, California, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oregon, South Dakota, Utah, Washington and Wyoming to register at Colorado resident tuition rates.

Additional program information is available at the Chemistry website.
