Program Information
Faculty: Graduate Studies
Degree: Master
Field of Study: Chemistry, GeneralChemistry, Other
Description Chemistry masters students must complete a thesis or project option. The thesis option has, as a substantial component, the completion of an original research program, culminating in the preparation of a thesis, and will prepare graduates for careers in research or for further academic study. The Project option provides training across disciplines particularly suitable to individuals with more defined career objectives, as well as provide a mechanism for non-traditional students (e.g. working students, teachers and professionals) to upgrade their skills. Students studying within the MCPS stream will, upon successful completion of the degree requirements outlined herein, obtain a MSc with one of the following study areas noted parenthetically on their transcript: Mathematics, Computer Science, Chemistry, Physics or any combination thereof. MSc students within the MCPS stream are required to complete 3 credits of Research Methodology, 3 credits of Research Seminar, a minimum of 9 credit hours of approved electives, and a 12 credit hour thesis. It is expected that the electives will consist of scientifically oriented courses, and that the thesis will involve an independent investigation resulting in a scientific contribution.
