Graduate Program


Choosing a graduate school is one of the most important choices that you will make and Iowa State is among the best in the country. We have one of the largest and best graduate programs in the United states with majors in analytical, inorganic, organic and physical chemistry. We also offer a special "chemistry" major designed by the major professor and the student.

Research is the focus of our graduate program and we have a renowned and well-funded faculty with whom you can choose to do study for your PhD. Our goal is to help you learn about the most modern research techniques and to think creatively about solutions to major scientific problems.

Each year, the Chemistry Department hosts two Open Houses for prospective students. Here are some photos from the most recent Open House Poster Session.
