Our Chemistry MS program comprises a core group of 31 research faculty working in state of the art research laboratories with all of the resources to pursue cutting-edge research in interdisciplinary chemical sciences.

We focus on personalized, 1-on-1 training of our students, emphasizing critical thinking and scientific curiosity in a welcoming, supportive learning environment, nurturing our students to grow into their scientific careers. 

We offer generous compensation packages for all of our students, including:

  • Guaranteed academic year stipend with most of our students also receiving a summer stipend 
  • Full tuition coverage
  • Health and wellness benefits
