The faculty of the Department of Chemistry at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, seek to prepare their students to join the international ranks of professional chemists in fundamental areas of chemistry as well as cross-disciplinary sciences in which chemical expertise plays a critical role in the development of new knowledge and technologies. Students planning to major in chemistry for the master’s or doctoral degree will ordinarily have attained a satisfactory record in the traditional areas of chemistry. The department, however, recognizes that modern chemistry transcends traditional disciplinary divisions. Therefore, it encourages students with undergraduate majors in chemical engineering, the biological sciences, physics, mathematics, computer science, or other fields to apply for admission to our program.

Admission to the graduate program is decided on a case-by-case basis, taking into consideration an applicant’s undergraduate record (traditionally including courses in general, analytical, inorganic, organic, and physical chemistry), performance on the general Graduate Record Examination (required), and supporting information such as references from previous faculty and research mentors, co-authorship of research presentations or papers, and awards. Recommendation for a student’s initial course of study in graduate school is based on the desired specialization, previous training and experience, and performance on departmental diagnostic exams administered following arrival in the department.

Intercollegiate Graduate Minor in Computational Science
The Department of Chemistry participates in the intercollegiate graduate minor in computational science (IGMCS) program. Any student pursuing a master’s or PhD with a major in chemistry can receive a minor in computational science by completing the appropriate IGMCS requirements. For further information, see the description of the IGMCS listed under the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. The Department of Chemistry also contributes courses to the IGMCS program curriculum.
