M.S. and Ph.D. Programs
The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry offers programs leading to the Master of Science (M.S.) and Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degrees in either Chemistry or Biochemistry. Programs of study are individually tailored to the needs of each student. Research programs encompass a broad range of molecular sciences. Many faculty have interdisciplinary research programs which either blend together the traditional divisions chemistry, biochemistry and molecular biology, or combine one of these divisions with those of physics, engineering, or materials
Graduate Students are supported during both the academic year and during summer months through either teaching assistantships (TA) or research assistantships (RA). University tuition is waived for all TAs and RAs in good academic standing. Twelve-month support is guaranteed for first-year students as long as satisfactory academic progress is maintained.
Acceptance into either the Chemistry or Biochemistry graduate program is required in order to receive an assistantship through the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry.
Arrange a Visit
The Department of Chemistry and Molecular Biology welcomes visits from prospective graduate students. The only way to see if a graduate program is right for you is to come, take a look, and meet the faculty and students for yourself. We would be happy to arrange for your visit to NDSU.
