The existing thesis program remains unchanged.

The non-thesis option requires a total of 36 graduate credits that combines a minimum of 21 hours of on-line graduate course work in chemistry with, typically, at least 9 hours of specialized graduate courses in business, education, or clinical sciences, with remaining hours approved by the student’s advisory committee.

The non-thesis option may make sense for employees who seek more breadth in their education than chemistry alone. It also may be of interest for employees who have a long term career interest to move out of the lab or those who have difficulty completing a thesis because of the nature of their work assignment.
