Master of Science in Chemistry
The M.Sc. in Chemistry is a 30 CH’s program that is offered both full and part time within the Department of Chemistry. Students are required to complete 24 credit hours of coursework in addition to 6 credit hours assigned to research and a completion of a M.Sc. thesis. In addition to 2 CH of college requirements, the coursework includes 5 compulsory courses in chemistry, namely 2 supportive courses (4 CH) and 3 core chemistry courses (9 CH), and 3 elective courses (9 CH), that allow the student to specialize in any specific topic related chemistry. Student progress is overseen by a research supervisor (and co-supervisors) and a thesis defense committee. The program is a fee-based program open for all students who meet the entry requirements.
