About the Non-Thesis Option M.S. in Chemistry

The Chemistry & Biochemistry Department offers a fee-based, non-thesis option master’s program. The program has been optimized to allow students to earn a master’s degree in a short amount of time (typically one to two years), while acquiring skills and knowledge in a wide range of topics.

For information, contact the graduate chair, Dr. Eric Masson, graduate recruitment chair, Dr. Michael Jensen.

Upon completion of this non-thesis M. S. degree, a student will be given the opportunity to apply to join the Chemistry Ph.D. program. The student’s application (like all graduate applications) will be reviewed by the graduate recruitment committee and the graduate chair for possible admission. Should the student be admitted, the classes taken during the non-thesis option master’s studies will count toward the completion of the Ph.D. degree.


A total of 30 credits is required for the non-thesis option for the Master of Science in Chemistry.
