An MS degree in biochemistry (Medicinal Chemistry), is your next step towards a rewarding career in health sciences, biotechnology or medicinal science. The training you will receive in the Biochemistry (Medicinal Chemistry), M.S. degree program will prepare you for entry into a wide range of graduate and pre-professional programs.
The Master of Science (MS) degree in Biochemistry with a Concentration in Medicinal Chemistry is designed for students who are in the final year of their Bachelor of Science degree in chemistry, biochemistry, biochemistry (medicinal chemistry), or molecular biosciences and biotechnology, who want to enhance their background in chemistry and biochemistry before entering schools of medicine, pharmacy and other health sciences. Students are required to complete a minimum of 30 semester hours. Detailed coursework information can be found below.
Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis, but in order to streamline the process, applications should be submitted by November 15 for spring admission and April 15 for fall admission.
The School of Molecular Sciences utilizes a two-part application process and both parts are required. The first part is the Pre-Application to the School of Molecular Sciences. The second part is the formal application through Graduate Admissions. This application should only be submitted after receiving notice of acceptance.
