Each student’s background and interests determine the course of study. The normal program leads to the Ph.D. degree. A student is not usually accepted for a terminal M.A. degree.
Fellowships, research appointments, and teaching assistantships are available for graduate students. There are no fixed admissions requirements. Undergraduate majors in chemistry, biology, earth sciences, mathematics, or physics may apply, as well as well-qualified individuals who will have received a B.A. degree.

Normally, the minimum course requirement for both the M.A. and the Ph.D. degrees is six one-semester graduate courses in chemistry and related sciences. Exceptionally well-prepared students may ask for a reduction of these requirements.
Requirements for the Ph.D. degree include a research dissertation worthy of publication, and a knowledge of chemistry and related material as demonstrated in an oral examination. Each student must teach for at least one year.
