The Ph.D. program is grounded in the four traditional fields of analytical, inorganic, organic, and physical chemistry, but also encompasses emerging interdisciplinary areas such as computational chemistry, materials chemistry, chemical biology, and chemistry education research.
From designing new optoelectronic or pharmaceutical materials to reducing toxic emissions and the invention of new clean fuels, our combination of internationally recognized faculty members and state-of-the-art facilities has provided alumni with the tools needed to thrive and succeed in the job market.
Our faculty members are committed to excellence and your success. They’ve been recognized with awards in their fields from the National Science Foundation, the W.M. Keck Foundation, the American Vacuum Society, and the American Chemical Society, among others. They also serve as editors or on editorial boards of major scientific journals and receive national and international recognition for their research expertise.
Doctoral student research culminates in a written dissertation of demonstrable scientific merit. The department requires that at least one paper from your Ph.D. work be accepted or submitted to a refereed journal by the time of the oral dissertation defense.
Earning an advanced degree in chemistry prepares you to be a leader in the scientific and technological advances that will bring us a better future. M.S. and Ph.D. graduates are valued for their knowledge of advanced subject material and, especially, for their research skills and experience. Ph.D. chemists often rise to positions of leadership within their organizations.
