Masters in Chemistry

Chemistry is the science which deals with molecular and atomic systems especially with the composition, properties, structure, and reactions of a substance (chemical reactions). Chemistry is closely related to physics and it is a branch of physical sciences. The main task of chemistry is to understand the origin of the substance. The composition of the substance is analyzed at atomic level. Atomic-molecular theory is the base of chemistry sciences. Chemistry differs from physics through the fact that during physical phenomena the substance does not turn into another (material vary on physical properties only) while during chemical reactions the substances transform into another. There are many branches of chemistry such as agro-chemistry, kinetics, cluster chemistry, combinatorial chemistry, solid state chemistry, nanochemistry, photochemistry and theoretical chemistry. Graduates can work in various positions, as chemical technologists, researchers, chemistry analysts, pharmacists, environmentalists, food technologists, oil and petroleum engineers and others.

Master Science Degree in Biochemistry is designed to train students in the ability to perform original research in the modern biochemistry, biophysics, and molecular biology disciplines. The program is useful for students who prefer to undertake research training without the longer-term commitment required for the Ph.D. degree. M.S. programs also are useful for students who are interested more in technical aspects of research than in careers as research directors. Successful defense of an independent research dissertation is required for the M.S. degree.
