The two-year (four semesters) Masters Programme in Chemistry (specializations in General, Organic and Analytic Chemistry) aims at providing a comprehensive study of various branches of chemistry to develop a critical and analytical approach to all major areas of the subject. The various courses in the first two semesters are presented in such a way as to give the students a harmonious view of the subject followed by the specialization courses of general chemistry/organic chemistry/analytical chemistry along with an industrial/institutional project in the last two semesters. Equal importance is given to both theory and practicals. The teaching methodology includes lecture, demonstration, seminars, internships, projects and presentations.
Program Objectives

1.   To prepare the students to become teachers of chemistry in centers of higher education.
