The widely respected Master of Science degree program in
Chemistry at St. John’s University prepares students for careers in
industry or education, government laboratories or private research.
Offered through the Graduate Division of St. John’s College of
Liberal Arts and Sciences, the M.S. in Chemistry also will prepare
students to pursue a doctoral degree in the field.
The M.S. degree program in Chemistry comprises a broad range of
specialized and cross-disciplinary courses in such areas as
- Organic and Inorganic chemistry
- Computer applications in chemistry
- Electronic Spectra and Group Theory
- Methods of Analysis
- Reaction Kinetics
- and Quantum Chemistry
The Department fosters a supportive scholarly community in which
students work closely with
distinguished faculty. In addition, a limited number of
graduate assistantships are available for qualified students.
Graduate assistants receive a stipend and tuition remission for
supervising undergraduate laboratory activities. Students applying
for assistantships must submit Graduate Record Examination (GRE)
scores (general and subject-specific) with their applications.
The undergraduate preparation of the student who expects to
undertake graduate work in chemistry is a B.S. in a chemical
science. Alternately, a non-chemistry degree student may
submit evidence of undergraduate preparation that normally
includes courses of eight or more credit hours in each of the
following: inorganic chemistry, organic chemistry,
analytical chemistry, physical chemistry, general
physics. In addition, he/she should be equipped with six
credits of mathematics, including differential and integral
calculus. Where there is a deficiency, the department Chair
will determine what basic courses the student must make up to
matriculate for an advanced degree in chemistry. In
addition, satisfactory scores on the GRE are required.
