Thesis

(15 hours)

A minimum of fifteen hours in lecture courses at the 5/6000 level selected from at least two of the five divisions of Chemist

Notes:


A maximum of two core courses may be taken in department(s) outside of the Department of Chemistry as substitution(s); howeve
r, all
outside courses must be approve
d in writing by the departmental graduate committee and must be written as such on the candidacy
form.


A maximum of nine hours of Independent Study, CHEM 5990, may be applied to the master’s degree.


All graduate students must also enroll and participate

in the Departmental Colloquium, CHEM 6970, for zero credit hours (these do not
have to be on the candidacy form) throughout the entire period of their graduate studies (excluding summer semesters).


Bioinformatics students are required to take at least tw
o courses from non
-
host departments. The two bioinformatics courses (ZOO
5903 and ZOO 5913) may not be used to satisfy the non
-
host department requirement.
