Master of Science in Chemistry (M.Sc. Chemistry) is a two year, four semester program of Tribhuvan University having 60 credit hours. During the first two semesters, all the student have to study one general stream but in the third semester the area of specialization is chosen. In third semester, out of three stream physical chemistry, organic chemistry and inorganic chemistry, students choose one of them. Moreover, in the third semester among many elective subjects like Spectroscopy, Nuclear Chemistry, Natural Product Chemistry, Biochemistry, Food Chemistry etc, students need to choose and study any one of those.
M. Sc. chemistry like M.Sc. Physics has very important role in the development of modern science and technology. Study of matter its atom, molecule, compounds, bonds, chemical reaction is the subject matter of a chemistry. From development of medicines to chemicals, from nuclear plant to thermal plant, from earth to atmosphere, from oxygen we breathe to byproduct carbon dioxide, there are no aspects which chemistry does not deal. Chemistry works as the bridge between different subjects of natural science.
