Academic Programs

  • Bachelor of Science in Chemistry (149-155 units) is a four-year course that provides students with a strong background in the traditional areas of chemistry: organic, analytical, biochemistry, physical and inorganic chemistry. (Curriculum)
  • Diploma in Chemistry is a one-year course for students with a bachelor's degree with at least 20 units of college chemistry to enable them to teach College Chemistry or pursue graduate studies.
  • Master of Science in Chemistry provides a comprehensive view of major fields of interest and develops the student's ability to conduct independent research. The course requires 24 units of course work and 6-unit masteral thesis.
  • Master of Science in Chemical Education is a non-thesis program for those who wish to specialize in Chemical Education. The curriculum includes graduate chemistry courses and education courses.
  • Doctor of Philosophy (Ph. D.) in Chemistry requires 24 units of graduate courses after the master's degree, candidacy examination, preliminary examinations, and a doctoral thesis.
