About Graduate Programs in Chemistry

The Chemistry & Biochemistry Department at Ohio University has an outstanding faculty with research interests across a wide range of areas. Interdisciplinary programs in bio-analysis, bio-organic chemistry and nano-materials science complement more traditional areas of study in organic, inorganic, and physical chemistry, and biochemistry. The department's mission is to provide a quality education to graduate students while pursuing state-of-the art research in chemistry. The objective of the graduate program is to educate and train students to become highly effective and competitive scientists by providing them with the interdisciplinary tools and research skills needed to succeed in their future career. This includes offering a variety of graduate level courses at rigorous levels and maintaining cutting-edge research programs within individual research laboratories.

Full-year financial support (including a tuition waiver) is available for all Ph.D. graduate students. We offer a highly competitive stipend for students offered a teaching assistantship. Highly qualified students may be eligible for fellowships that provide additional stipend support of $1,000 to $4,000. Individual research groups may have research assistantships available that offer stipend support without teaching responsibilities.
