The two-year Master of Science in Chemistry program at Eastern Illinois University involves advanced study in the major areas of chemistry and a research project culminating in a thesis. The program has an excellent track record of student placement, with graduates moving on to doctorate programs; professional schools; and positions in industry, government and education. The curriculum promotes independent thinking and strives to challenge students to achieve a high level of technical competence and creativity. Collaborative within and between research groups and interdisciplinary coursework develops team-building skills. Students regularly co-author peer-reviewed publications and have opportunities to improve their communication skills through presentations of their research both on campus and at regional, national and international meetings.

If you are looking for a highly interactive environment where technical excellence and close working relationships with faculty mentors are priorities, please inquire about our MS in Chemistry program. Tell us your professional goals and we will tell you how our program can get you there.
