The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the University of Arizona offers Ph.D. programs in both Chemistry and Biochemistry. The Chemistry program is offered by University of Arizona.
|Full-time Duration:||1 year|
|Tuition Fee:||$10,063 per semester|
|Location:||Tucson, United States|
The Chemistry program is offered by University of Arizona.
The cutting-edge research programs span several traditional subdisciplines of chemistry including analytical, biochemistry, organic, physical, inorganic, chemical education and teacher preparation, as well as a broad range of multidisciplinary research programs including biological chemistry, materials science, surface science, polymer science, protein science, and gas phase and interstellar chemistry.
The breadth and diversity of our program provides students considerable freedom in their Ph.D. studies.
In addition to formal Departmental appointments, our faculty members routinely participate in a number of interdisciplinary graduate training programs including the Biological Chemistry Program, Chemical Physics Program, Biochemistry and Molecular and Cellular Biology, Program in Applied Mathematics, Computational Modeling of Biomedical Systems, and the IGERT Program in Comparative Genomics.
Graduate students may choose to be affiliated with any number of these programs, some of which provide research assistantships on a highly competitive basis.
The faculty of Chemistry and Biochemistry consistently receive research support from the National Science Foundation, National Institutes of Health, Department of Defense and Department of Energy. Annual research expenditures in the Department are in excess of $23 million. The research endeavors in the Department are further supported and enhanced by our world-class research support services.
“Choosing the Master’s program for Physiological Sciences at the University of Arizona was one of the best decisions I could have made in my education. Our department is warm and collaborative, offering an array of research topics and techniques underneath a vast and integrative umbrella of physiology. Beyond my research experience, I was presented with teaching opportunities, which I feel honed my skill of scientific communication. Having the dynamic research/teaching/class schedule not only kept me active but helped me reinforce material in multiple contexts. Overall, this program was exactly what I wanted in my segway into the medical sciences… and with my teaching assistantship paying for my tuition, how could I say no?”

Students who plan to teach chemistry in secondary schools will find this program adapted to their needs. The M.A. degree is a non-thesis degree that is awarded for advanced study in chemistry beyond the bachelor’s degree.
