Why study chemistry? A practical reason is that our highly technical society faces many problems that cannnot be solved without an understanding of the science of chemistry and its methods of solving problems. A more intangible reason is that chemistry is central to a variety of other disciplines and that many problems ultimately will have chemical solutions.

At the graduate level, an MS degree program is offered. Students with MS degrees have job opportunities in research and technical laboratory services. In addition, flexible programs can be designed to combine chemical knowledge and skills with other interests of the MS-level student (e.g., biology or environmental science).

Graduate Program

The MS degree offered at CU Denver is a broad-based chemistry degree that allows students to take courses and do research in the following basic fields: analytical, biochemistry, inorganic, organic, physical or environmental chemistry.

The MS program is available to both full- and part-time students. The chemistry faculty strive to ensure that students receive excellent advising and supervision of work. Students enrolled in the program have an opportunity to be appointed as laboratory teaching assistants. Research activities on the part of the chemistry faculty provide opportunities for graduate students to obtain research assistantships.
