Students in the MS Program are supported by teaching assistantships or stipends from research grants. Washington, DC, is a center for scientific research, and our students have the opportunity to attend seminars and use the research facilities at area laboratories such as the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) (formerly the National Bureau of Standards).
Students Run the Labs around Here!
AU Chemistry undergrads not only redesign their own research projects. They reshape the courses every year.
