Position Yourself for a Rewarding Career
The Chemistry Scholars Plan from the University of Houston-Clear Lake combines focused and accelerated coursework with graduate level research, allowing you to complete two degrees in a timely and cost-effective manner. The program encourages highly motivated and qualified students to obtain both a Bachelor of Science and Master of Science degree in Chemistry.
Combine Scientific Theory with Hands-on Lab and Field Experience
This dual degree plan gives you advantages in the job market because you’ll possess
more training, an advanced degree and more research experience – which leads to increased
earning potential. If you’re enrolled in the Scholars Plan, you are expected to begin
a graduate research project early in your studies, and this will be coupled with projects
and classwork of increasing difficulty and quality.
