Chemistry MS

Grow as an independent researcher and expand your education through advanced coursework in Youngstown Sate's University's master's program in Chemistry.

What You'll Study

Chemistry is one of the most marketable degrees, and advanced study gives you even more latitude to direct research, supervise and position yourself where the action's at in the field.

YSU's master's program launches your professional research career and prepares you to compete as a chemist in any sector of manufacturing, medicine, forensic science, biotechnology or environmental science—or for top doctoral programs and careers in education.

Technology is central to the master's program. You'll have access to the wide range of instrumentation and facilities, including spectroscopy methods, mass spectrometers, gas chromatography, transmission and scanning electron microscopy, and an X-ray diffraction facility that is among the best in the nation.

During every step of the program, you'll also benefit from intense interaction with faculty who take their role as mentors, along with their bodies of work, seriously.
