Graduate education at Colorado State aims to train creative and competent scientists through the pursuit of answers to scientifically important research problems. Graduate students have opportunities to take a wide array of courses within the university. Graduate classes emphasize the most modern concepts and are taught by an internationally respected faculty.
Areas of research cover both the traditional chemistry disciplines (analytical, inorganic, organic, physical) and interdisciplinary fields (materials, chemical biology, environmental). Instrument facilities at CSU are extensive through the department’s Central Instrument Facility and cell culture lab, as well as the university’s Proteomics and Metabolomics Facility and EcoCore Analytical Facility. The department maintains electronics, woodworking and scientific glassblowing expertise, and the university has a fully-staffed machine shop.
