Doctor of Philosophy in Chemistry

Students of exceptional ability may pursue a program leading to the doctoral degree. The prospective doctoral candidate will develop a broad background in chemistry and related fields and prove his ability to do independent research. An early assessment of the student’s ability is achieved in the candidacy examination to be completed by the end of the second year. Research fields appropriate for the Ph.D. candidate are all major areas of chemistry. Current specializations include atmospheric, environmental, medicinal, pharmaceutical, theoretical, and green chemistry, as well as spectroscopic techniques. Interdisciplinary programs with other science departments, such as physics or biology, can be pursued.
