M.S. Chemistry

Course Description

The Chemistry Master's program provides knowledge, skills and discovery within the chemical sciences. The program prepares candidates for professional employment in chemistry, for teaching at the community college or secondary level, and for graduate studies beyond the M.S. level in chemistry and related fields. Primary focus is on a research project that culminates in a written thesis or project report and an oral defense, supplemented with advanced course work in chemistry or related disciplines. Research is offered in a variety of fields including interdisciplinary work in organic, inorganic, physical, computational, analytical, environmental, biochemistry, and chemistry education.


The Department of Chemistry is housed in a $60 million state-of-the-art science building that is fully equipped with an array of modern instrumentation (NMR, FTIR, HPLC, GC-MS, UV-Vis, IC, fluorescence spectroscopy, etc.) as well as computational facilities. Additional instrumentation is available for shared use in other departments on the CWU campus as well as in regional facilities.


The graduate program curriculum includes advanced course work as well as laboratory research culminating in a written thesis or project report and an oral defense.

CWU has small classes with less than 30 students in each class, this encourages a close student-instructor relationship which has been very helpful to me especially during my freshman year when I was trying to get used to the way of life here. CWU offers amazing tuition prices and waivers for international students to enable them to concentrate on school and not have to worry about their financials all the time. The international community here at CWU is very supportive of international students and the advisors are always looking out for the students by exploring new ways to improve the services they already offer.”

The fact of being a small student group make the faculty pay you more attention, being one of their main priorities.”
