Chemistry Graduate Studies
At Oklahoma State University, an advanced degree in Chemistry is primarily a research degree. Our graduate program is aimed at the development of a pronounced ability to perform independent creative scientific research. Through carefully selected course work, we provide a firm foundation of skills and knowledge that will enable the student to not only succeed in their graduate research projects, but also excel in their subsequent careers. In order to commence research as early as possible, entering graduate students are encouraged to discuss thesis research projects with faculty members whose research interests them. Students usually start research on their thesis topic within the first year, after choosing a research advisor. We maintain an excellent faculty to student ratio so students can have a selection of advisers and research topics. The smaller number of graduate students is far more conducive to faculty/student interaction, collaboration between research groups, and easy access to instrumentation.
