The goals of the graduate program in chemistry at Rutgers-Camden are to offer courses in the major branches of chemistry so that students can reinforce (strengthen) their chemical knowledge and expand into additional specialized areas of chemical analysis/study. We offer an encouraging atmosphere advantageous to the learning process through low student – to – faculty ratios.
The program is tailored to meet the educational needs of the individual student based on their specific career goals: industry, high school teaching, continued education (PhD or other professional school). The program includes the opportunity to conduct original, publishable research under the mentorship of knowledgeable faculty.
- Demonstrate knowledge of the fundamentals of chemistry and an increased understanding in their area of specialization.
- Be able to apply critical analysis in the use of the scientific method.
- Be able to obtain scientific information from the literature, evaluate scholarly publications and properly reference technical information.
- Be fluent in the language of chemistry including communication of chemical knowledge (both oral and written communication).
