Chemistry and Biochemistry Graduate Studies

Welcome to the Graduate Program in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at Kent State University.

Student success is at the core of our graduate program that serves an ethnically diverse and highly talented student body.  Students who have received their M.S. or Ph.D. degree from our program are employed in a large variety of industrial settings, including Fortune 500 companies; or work at colleges and universities around the globe.

Our outstanding faculty conduct world-class research in biochemistry as well as analytical, inorganic, organic, and physical chemistry.  Many of the research topics that are being pursued by our exceptional graduate students are built around interdisciplinary themes in the areas of biomedical research (bioanalytical chemistry, bioinorganic chemistry, biophotonics, nanomedicine, and molecular/cell biology), and materials science (nanomaterials, liquid crystals, photonic materials, spectroscopy, separations, and surface science).  The research of our faculty is funded through grants from federal (e.g., NIH, NSF, NOAA, DOE) as well as state agencies.

Our graduate program offers generous stipends, a student health insurance plan and modern family leave policies.  The suburban setting of our campus provides a safe and inspiring environment to pursue your educational goals.

We are pleased that you are interested in learning more about our graduate program and hope that you will find these web pages informative.
