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. Facilities 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. Curriculum 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.
Incoming students are expected to have earned an undergraduate degree in chemistry or a related field (equivalent to those offered at CWU; see requirements for the B.S. and B.A. degrees in chemistry) and demonstrate potential for superior scholarship. Applicants must provide Graduate Record Examination scores for the General Test. International students for whom English is a second language must provide TOEFL or IELTS scores to demonstrate their English proficiency. Application materials may be obtained through the School of Graduate Studies and Research website listed above.
