Undergraduate Degrees

From atoms, molecular geometry, and organic chemistry, to hands-on techniques and insightful lectures into the many faceted fields of chemistry, the Department of Chemistry at Texas A&M University-Kingsville has much to offer for the potential and enrolled students.

The aim of the department is to provide certain service courses for other departments whose subject matter is based, in part, on the fundamentals of chemistry; a cultural background for those who are interested in science and desire the B.S. degree but do not wish to become professional chemists; and proper education for those who wish to become professional chemists.

Graduate Program

The Department of Chemistry offers a Master of Science degree. Requirements for admission are (a) a grade point average of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale and a satisfactory score on the GRE Aptitude Test (a TOEFL score of 525 when applicable); (b) 20 hours of approved undergraduate chemistry, including 12 advanced; (c) 8 hours of approved physics and 6 hours of calculus. Students not satisfying these requirements may be admitted conditionally. The department, in examining the applicant's prerequisites, may accept equivalent hours or require additional work. An entering graduate student is normally subjected to four placement examinations in organic, inorganic, analytical, and physical chemistry that are used for advising the student's beginning course work.
