The Master in Chemistry Study Program is an academic-oriented education that was established in 1981. Graduates of the Chemistry Masters program receive the M.Sc. (Master of Science) degree. Academic activities in the Chemistry Masters Study Program, Department of Chemistry, Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences UGM, are focused on increasing mastery of chemistry, both theoretical and experimental based on 5 study interests. Academically, in 1981-1985 the Study Program managed one study interest, namely the chemical studies interests. With the development of internal capabilities (human resources, facilities and infrastructure) and the increasing number of prospective students interested in attending more specific education and labor market demands, the type of study interest in this study program develops into five study interests, namely: Inorganic Chemistry, Physical Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, Analytical Chemistry, and Environmental Chemistry. The five study interests give variety and specificity to the Thesis outcomes and the competencies of the Chemistry Masters Program graduates. The goal of learning outcomes in the Chemistry Masters Study Program is to provide opportunities for students to have competence in terms of knowledge, understanding, and skills in the field of chemistry at the Masters level, as well as the quality and other required attributes.

Graduate Competencies

The featured academic programs in Chemistry Masters Program include:

  • Green Chemistry Character-based Curriculum Model
    The Chemistry Masters Study Program organizes graduate character traits, having knowledgeability, capability, and academic skills based on Green Chemistry or Chemical Sustainability. The character-forming courses include compulsory subject, namely Sustainability in Chemistry, and elective courses (Environmental Biogeochemistry, Industrial and Environmental Analysis, Environmental Management Systems, Environmental Chemodynamics, Chemical Toxicology and Chemical Aspects in Ecology).
    Academic Program with International Exposure
  • Through collaboration with the Hokkaido University, Japan since 2010, the UGM Master of Chemistry Study Program actively provides opportunities for students to conduct research and lectures at Hokkaido University through the PARE (Populations-Activities-Resources-Environments) program in a short-term or long-term visit.
