Students who have done outstanding work during their first three years and have a professional interest in chemistry may apply for the BA/MS program when they are within 4 courses of completing undergraduate degree requirements. By the end of the third year the applicant should have completed nearly all of the 300-level course requirements, all or nearly all of the Weinberg College requirements, and at least 1 term of independent study.
To fulfill the MS requirements, students must take 9 graduate courses and submit a senior thesis. Applicants should submit to the director of undergraduate studies in chemistry a course plan for the fourth year, a brief description of proposed research, an unofficial transcript, and a letter of support from the research adviser.
