Graduate Study in Chemistry in the United States: A Guide for Non-U.S. Students.
Grace, Judy Diane; Fernando, Quintus
A guide to help students from other countries pursue graduate education in chemistry in the United States is presented. The process of gaining admission to U.S. universities is emphasized, and the nature of graduate education is briefly explained. It is noted that students majoring in chemistry are expected to have a sound background in analytical, inorganic, organic, and physical chemistry. A representative list of textbooks used in U.S. chemistry departments in recent years is included for each subfield of chemistry, and a few mathematics and physics texts are also listed. Attention is also directed to preparation for foreign students entering graduate schools in chemistry, financial aid, selection of a graduate school in chemistry, and application to graduate schools. Steps in the application process and the associated time frame are covered, including entrance examinations. Finally, the names and addresses of U.S. and Canadian institutions that offer Ph.D. degrees in chemistry are presented. (SW)
