Degree Specific Credits: 36
Required Cumulative GPA: 3.0
Catalog Year: 2022-23
18 credits must be regular letter-grade courses, six courses usually worth 3 credits each at the 500 level; some 400 UG level courses can be used. At least 9 of the 18 credits must be in 500-level letter-grade courses. Up to 9 of the 18 credits may be in letter-grade courses in a non-chemistry focus area such as education, journalism or business. These 9 credits from outside the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry must be approved by the advisory committee and the Graduate Education Committee.
Twenty (20) of the 36 total credits must be in Chemistry. Seminar, research and professional paper credits at the 500 and 600-level and approved transfer credits can be included in this total. The Department and student’s advisory committee may require more than the minimum Graduate School requirements.
All graduate students will register for CHMY 630 Seminar every semester. Attending departmental research seminars is integral to a student’s education and allows the student a chance to learn about areas of science outside of their research area. Attendance of these seminars is mandatory unless excused by the faculty member responsible for organizing the seminar. The method of grading this class is the choice of the faculty member organizing the seminar.
