Advance your education through a graduate degree in chemistry.
Pursuing graduate work in chemistry at TCU combines the best of both worlds. You can
work on problems of contemporary interest — from medicine to materials science — in
a setting that allows for intimate mentorship from your Ph.D. advisor.
That is, the average research group size here is two graduate students – far less than that of R1 institutions. This environment is ideal for students that come to graduate school with a broad liberal arts background or little research experience, but with a passion for science.
While pursuing your degree, opportunities for professional development abound. Your training in communication will form a foundation for presentations at regional, national and international conferences as well as your first job talks. Working hands-on with your Ph.D. advisor in the design of experiments or preparation of manuscripts will hone your abilities as an independent investigator and clear communicator. Teaching and working in a laboratory with undergraduate researchers will develop your leadership skills.
Students graduating from the program have opportunities to enter industry or academia.
Many pursue post-doctoral work at some of the most prestigious laboratories across
