Each M.S. student may include a graduate course outside the Department of Chemistry on his or her Program of Study to allow for exposure to a broader base of advanced or interdisciplinary subject matter. A course offered by departments other than Chemistry may be listed on the student's Program of Study, as long as it is approved by the student's research advisor and Advisory Committee. For the M.S. degree, a maximum of one of the four required graduate courses may be taken outside the Chemistry Department. Any graduate course taken outside the Chemistry Department and listed on the student's Program of Study must be passed with a grade of B or better.
