EIU Master of Science in Chemistry

Non-Thesis Master of Science Program in either Chemistry or Biochemistry

This track does not involve such intensive research work on a project, and replaces the research credits with additional coursework.  A semester or two of research can be taken if desired but is not required, and a thesis does not have to be written / defended.  This program will most likely take 2 years.

.The course work includes:

(For course descriptions, please click here)


  • 4 core chemistry graduate classes (CHM 5180, 5210, 5360, and 5420)
  • 6 elective courses (18credits) which can be from upper-level or graduate courses from either the Chemistry Dept. or from other Depts (pending approval from the Graduate Coordinator)
  • Graduate seminar [CHM 5000 & 5001], where in CHM 5001 you present a 40-minute literature based seminar
  • Intro to Chem. Research (CHM 5002) and Critical Reading (CHM 5003) classes, 1 credit each


  • Same as the above, except that 2, and no more than 2, of the core chemistry graduate courses can be replaced by approved graduate biology courses.  

Non-thesis MS track students are awarded graduate assistantships if available.
