Chemistry Graduate Programs
The Department of Chemistry offers an MS degree and a PhD in various areas of chemistry including analytical chemistry, atmospheric chemistry, educational chemistry, inorganic chemistry, organic chemistry, materials chemistry, physical chemistry and polymer chemistry. Faculty in the department recognize the importance of conducting fundamental research while working on problems of practical interest with applications in the modern world.
Areas of Chemistry Graduate Student Research
Drexel graduate students have focused their research in areas including:
- The use of digital electronic methods to analyze trace constituents of air and water
- A study of the molecules of living systems
- The effects of toxic chemicals and carcinogens, synthesis and characterization of compounds of medicinal and industrial interest
- Methods for studying macromolecules, and characterization of transient species using lasers
The department strives to maintain a community of research scholars (faculty, postdoctoral fellows, and graduate and undergraduate students) that is large enough to provide a variety of experiences within chemistry, yet small enough to give each student individual attention. Both full-time and part-time plans of study are available for students looking to earn their graduate degree in chemistry.
