DePaul's Master of Science in Polymers and Coatings Science program offers students an opportunity for focused study and specialization in the area of polymers and coatings within the larger field of chemistry. This innovative program, directed by Dr. Gregory Kharas
, was developed in association with input from the polymer and coatings industry to prepare chemists to work in this important area.
The Polymer and Coatings Science program provides both thesis and non-thesis options:
- Thesis students must write a thesis based on a research project and pass a two-part oral examination.
- Non-thesis students complete degree requirements solely through coursework.
