The Chemistry Department at Tuskegee University offers a Master of Science degree program. The M.S. program in Chemistry includes a research thesis in the major areas of chemistry (analytical, organic, physical, inorganic, biochemistry and polymer chemistry) as well as required selected courses from these areas.
An interdisciplinary program offering the PhD in Integrative Biosciences is also offered that may interest
chemistry majors as well as a PhD in Materials Science and Engineering for those whose second concentration was Materials Science.
Instrumentation maintained by the Chemistry Department includes a 300 MHz FT-NMR spectrometer, FT-IR and UV-Vis spectrophotometers, spectrofluorometer, thermal analysis instrumentation (DSC, DTA and TGA), and various chromatography instruments (GC, HPLC and GPC). Currently there are ten full-time chemistry faculty, nine having the Ph.D. degree. Adequately prepared students are advised to enroll in four required core courses (Chemistry 513; 541; 622 and 634 or 635) during the first year. If the student has a course deficiency, remedial work is assigned to remove the deficiency.
There are a limited number of assistantships and fellowships available in the Department.
