Master of Science in Green Chemistry
at Chatham University
Chatham's new Master of Science in Green Chemistry is the first program of its kind in the United States. Focused on delivering a truly unique educational experience for students with undergraduate degrees in biochemistry, biology, and chemistry, the M.S. in Green Chemistry program will delve into the design of products and processes that minimize the use and generation of hazardous substances. Graduates of the program will hold a competitive advantage over students from other chemistry programs that claim "green chemistry" as a departmental mission, as Chatham's program courses were developed specifically for the practice of green chemistry.
The M.S. in Green Chemistry is focused on developing highly effective and well-rounded science professionals. In addition to combining elements from all five sub-disciplines of chemistry — analytical chemistry, biochemistry, inorganic chemistry, organic chemistry, and physical chemistry — to build upon students' previous education, the program will also leverage business courses to strengthen students' management and communication skills. Some of the courses will be offered through Chatham's Falk School of Sustainability, deeping students' subject matter knowledge as it relates to sustainability and green practices.
