As of Fall 2017, the stipend for the chemistry and biochemistry graduate students is $25,000. All graduate students making normal progress toward their degrees are guaranteed teaching or research assistantship stipends for the 5.5 years normally needed to complete the PhD degree, or for the 2 to 2.5 years needed for the MS degree. A number of one-year fellowships are awarded to graduate students with outstanding preparation and records.
The faculty-to-student ratio is 1:3. Approximately thirty faculty are the foundation of our excellent graduate program. The department occupies the 190,000-square-foot Benson Science Building, which provides comfortable, modern laboratories. Extensive instrumentation is available and constantly being replaced or upgraded to support cutting-edge research.
