PhD in Chemistry

Boston University - Boston, MA

  • Doctors of Philosophy

Candidates who enter with a bachelor’s degree must complete 64 credits in chemistry, 20 of which must be academic course credits. The student’s major advisor or the Graduate Programs Committee may require that specific non-research courses be taken beyond the requirement. Of the non-research courses, two must be outside the candidate’s major area of specialization, and at least four must be at the 600 level or above. Students may petition to be excused from non-research courses on the basis of equivalent courses taken elsewhere. Two courses acceptable for graduate credit in mathematics or natural sciences other than chemistry may be substituted for chemistry courses. All remaining required credits must be in research. In addition, candidates must satisfy the qualifying examination requirements and present a dissertation, which must be approved by a first and second reader and defended at an oral examination.
