Graduate Programs

The graduate program in Chemistry at Tufts University is large enough to foster stimulating interaction among colleagues and provide research opportunities at the frontiers of science, but small enough to have a very favorable student/faculty ratio. Doctoral students become well acquainted with the faculty and, based on mutual interests, select a research supervisor during their first semester. Formal requirements are minimized to allow students the flexibility to tailor their Ph.D. or M.S. program to meet their individual needs. A more detailed description of the program requirements can be found in the Handbook of Academic Requirements & Procedure for the Chemistry Graduate Program.
