If a potential thesis supervisor has been contacted, he/ she must be identified in the statement of intent.
  • We encourage students to submit the results of a chemistry subject GRE, particularly if you are applying from outside of North America.
  • Acceptance into the program requires that a participating member in the Department of Chemistry agrees to supervise the student’s research program. Prospective students are thus recommended to contact potential supervisors in the Department of Chemistry. If a potential thesis supervisor has been contacted, this should be identified in the statement of research interest. See the program website for information regarding participating faculty.
