5-year BS/MS in Chemistry

Chemistry majors with Junior-level standing who are on track to complete both semesters of physical chemistry and physical chemistry laboratory by the end of their third year are invited to apply to our new 5-year BS/MS program. Eligible students must have an overall GPA of 3.3 and a 3.5 GPA in Chemistry. Students may apply online and must submit three letters of recommendation, a statement of purpose, and submit a copy of their transcripts.

Successful applicants will enter this program at the beginning of their senior year and will complete 24 hours of 400 level chemistry courses in route to getting their MS at the end of their 5th year. Two courses completed during the senior year will count both toward satisfying the BS and MS degree requirements.

Interested students are encouraged to contact the Graduate Program Director, Dr. Martina Schmeling, at mschmel@luc.edu more information.
