Note(s): With the approval of the candidate's graduate advisor, courses may be taken in the natural sciences, mathematics, computer science, education, etc., as necessary to broaden the candidate's background

Student completing a thesis must successfully defend the thesis and all students must successfully complete comprehensive examinations in chemical education and one area of chemistry.

Qualifier Examinations - Each student must pass qualifying examinations in three of five areas selected from chemistry content (analytical, biological, inorganic, organic or physical chemistry). Students will have two opportunities to pass each area exam. Qualifier examinations are scheduled during the week preceding the beginning of classes each semester. If an examination is failed, the requirement may be satisfied by completing designated undergraduate coursework in the appropriate subdiscipline with a minimum grade of "B."
