Admission to Master’s and Doctoral Programs

The requirements for admission to the MS and PhD programs are identical and are consistent with the Admission Requirements of the College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics. In evaluating individual applications for admission, a Department committee considers the content of undergraduate and graduate programs taken and grades earned, particularly in the areas of Chemistry, Physics, Biology, and Mathematics; scores earned on the GRE (competitive scores in either or both of the General GRE and Chemistry Subject GRE tests are favorably considered, though both tests are an optional component of the application); scores on the TSE and TOEFL exams; three letters of recommendation from individuals who are able to judge the candidate’s likelihood for success in graduate school and his or her potential for scholarly scientific research; and any previous scientific and technical experience, publications, and presentations.
