MASTER OF SCIENCE
The minimum requirement is 12 units of graduate coursework including CHEM 801, and CHEM 802 which students are required to take as early in their program as possible. CHEM 802 should be taken in the earliest semester possible, following the completion of CHEM 801.
Students are expected to complete the course requirements in six terms and complete the program requirements in no more than nine terms (see Graduate General Regulation 1.12.2)
All students are required to attend 75% of weekly seminars each semester unless recognized conflicts exist. Failure to meet this requirement will result in an assessment of 'unsatisfactory progress' at the student's next committee meeting (see Graduate General Regulation 1.8.2)
DOCTOR OF PHILOSOPHY
Students entering the program with a bachelor of science (BSc) degree or equivalent (including students who transfer from MSc to the PhD) will complete 15 units in graduate courses including CHEM 808, but not including CHEM 802.
For students entering with a master's degree, 9 units of graduate courses including CHEM 808 is required, but not including CHEM 801 and 802.
Students are expected to complete the program requirements in four to five years with the possibility of one year extension. Failure to successfully defend a PhD thesis within the prescribed years will be considered unsatisfactory progress (see Graduate General Regulation 1.8.2)
