Oklahoma State University (OSU) was founded on December 25, 1890, as Oklahoma Agricultural and Mechanical College. The University was renamed Oklahoma State University on July 1, 1957. OSU is located in Stillwater, a north-central Oklahoma community with a population of almost 50,000. Stillwater is approximately one-hour driving distance from the Tulsa and Oklahoma City metropolitan areas.


At OSU, the Department of Chemistry is part of the Arts and Sciences College and is located in three buildings, Physical Sciences I and II, and the Henry Bellmon Research Center. Our undergraduate curriculum includes work in each of four major chemistry subdisciplines--analytical, inorganic, organic, and physical. Students can earn an ACS-certified or a departmental B.S. degree in Chemistry. Over the past five years, 60 students have graduated with the B.S. degree: 40% have begun careers in industry, 15% have attended medical school, and 45% have gone on to graduate study.


Our graduate education program is aimed at the development of a pronounced ability to perform independent creative scientific research. Through carefully selected course work, we provide a firm foundation of skills and knowledge that will enable the student to succeed in both their graduate research project and their subsequent careers.  Students usually start research on their thesis topic within the first year after choosing a research advisor and a thesis research topic. Although most students enter immediately into a Ph.D. degree program, a M.S. program is also available.


In both the undergraduate and graduate degree programs, we maintain an excellent faculty to student ratio. For undergraduates, this means personalized attention in the advance courses, access to state of the art instrumentation and the ability to perform cutting edge undergraduate research. For graduate students, the resulting collegial atmosphere is very conducive to faculty/student interaction, collaboration between research groups, and undelayed access to instrumentation.
