Master of Chemistry (MS)

School of Science and Engineering
Atlantic International University

The Master of Chemistry (MS) program objective is to provide students with the knowledge and skills necessary to work in their chosen field. Sample course studies include: Organic Chemistry, Inorganic Chemistry, Biochemistry, Geochemistry, Spectroscopy, Chemical Kinetic, among others. The Master of Chemistry program is offered online via distance learning. After evaluating both academic record and life experience, AIU staff working in conjunction with Faculty and Academic Advisors will assist students in setting up a custom-made program, designed on an individual basis. This flexibility to meet student needs is seldom found in other distance learning programs. Our online program does not require all students to take the same subjects/courses, use the same books, or learning materials. Instead, the online Master of Chemistry curriculum is designed individually by the student and academic advisor. It specifically addresses strengths and weaknesses with respect to market opportunities in the student’s major and intended field of work. Understanding that industry and geographic factors should influence the content of the curriculum instead of a standardized one-fits-all design is the hallmark of AIU’s unique approach to adult education. This philosophy addresses the dynamic and constantly changing environment of working professionals by helping adult students in reaching their professional and personal goals within the scope of the degree program.

Important: Below is an example of the topics or areas you may develop and work on during your studies. By no means is it a complete or required list as AIU programs do not follow a standardized curriculum. It is meant solely as a reference point and example.

Job Description Master of Chemistry

Chemists seek out new knowledge about chemicals and apply that knowledge in a myriad of settings. Chemical research has discovered and developed new synthetic fibers, paints, adhesives, drugs, cosmetics, electronics, and lubricants just to name a few. Many chemists work in research and development, where they conduct basic research investigating the properties, composition, and structure of matter and the combination and reaction of different substances with each other. When this research is applied and developed, new products or processes are created. Chemists use computers and a wide array of sophisticated laboratory instruments to conduct their research.

Chemists often specialize into areas of analytical, organic, inorganic, physical, theoretical, macromolecular, medicinal, and materials chemists. But in one way or another, all chemists are involved in the process of developing new materials or improving existing ones.

Skills Required for a Career in Chemistry

Increasingly, chemists are expected to work as part of interdisciplinary teams. As a result, chemists need to have a basic understanding of other disciplines including business, marketing, and economics. Leadership abilities and good verbal and written communication skills are also beneficial. Individuals in this field should like working with their hands and using computer modeling to build scientific apparatus and conduct laboratory experiments. Successful chemists are curious individuals who can work independently, focus on details, and remain persistent.
