About Inorganic Chemistry
Masters degrees in Inorganic Chemistry provide advanced study of inorganic (non-living) elements, compounds and reaction mechanisms.
Programmes include taught MSc courses and research-based MRes and MPhil degrees. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant field such as Chemistry, Biochemistry or Chemical Engineering.
You will be trained in numerous approaches to chemical synthesis to study the nature and behaviour of various inorganic chemicals, and apply these techniques to modern-day necessities. You will also explore atomic and molecular approaches such as ionisation, as well as sampling, imaging and data collection.
The skills you will gain through this Masters may be applied to various industries and practices. These could include developing approaches in agriculture (such as the creation of pesticides), drug development, and branches of materials science including the production of surfactants and protective coatings.
Potential roles may be within commercial industries, producing and manufacturing items such as detergents and food preservatives. Or, you may work within research institutes, testing compounds for use in products such as pharmaceuticals or cosmetics. A Masters in this field would also provide an excellent foundation for further PhD level research.

Our one-year course combines the opportunity to take modules from a wide range of cutting-edge fields in chemistry with sessions on practical, technical skills, scientific writing, communication and presentation, and a three month summer project.
The University of Sheffield's MSc Chemistry course is designed to take you to the next stage of your scientific career. From your undergraduate degree, you will know which areas of chemistry interest you most, and you might already know what kind of job you'd like to do.
This twelve month chemistry MSc is designed primarily for international students, either to act as a preparation for PhD studies or for students wishing to broaden their research experience and knowledge of chemistry within the context of the English language.
Materials Chemistry has emerged as an important sub-discipline within Chemistry. It cross-cuts the traditional Organic/Inorganic/Physical boundaries of Chemistry and overlaps many disciplines from Engineering to the Biosciences.
This MSc aims to provide students who have already studied chemistry to the level equivalent to a good UK BSc (Hons) with the necessary additional skills and depth of knowledge to become professional chemists.
Each graduate program in the College of Arts and Sciences offers a limited number of partial scholarships. Program Scholarships range from $1,000 to $15,000
These exciting 12-month postgraduate Masters degrees consist of taught, advanced level, lecture courses and also provide an opportunity to conduct high-level research within one of the world class groups in the School of Chemistry.
Our postgraduate programmes are specifically designed to enhance your career prospects and research expertise. Students will benefit from our broad range of industrial partners and internationally leading research expertise, and will get the opportunity to work within our research groups.
Our Chemistry degree is a highly versatile course allowing you to direct your studies to specialised areas of chemistry. The course places strong emphasis on practical chemistry and focuses on current topics in chemistry research.
