Graduate program


Students are obliged to follow academic regulations and requirements of the POSTECH graduate program. The following represents the required courses of each individual division and the ones commonly required

  • Physical Chemistry : Should take at least two courses among Quantum Chemistry(CHEM510), Molecular Spectroscopy(CHEM513), Statistical Thermodynamics(CHEM613), and Chemical Dynamics(CHEM614).
  • Organic Chemistry : Advanced Organic Chemistry(CHEM521).
  • Inorganic Chemistry : Advanced Inorganic ChemistryⅠ(CHEM531).
  • Analytical Chemistry : Advanced Analytical Chemistry(CHEM541).
  • Polymer Chemistry : No specific courses are required.
  • Biochemistry : Advanced Chemical Biology(CHEM561).
  • Biomedical Chemistry : Advanced Chemical Biology(CHEM561).
[Commonly Required]
  • Master Thesis Research(CHEM699), Doctoral Dissertation Research(CHEM899): these courses can be taken repeatedly.
  • Colloquium(CHEM809): The following requirements are applied to the graduate students starting from year 2012.
