Special attention is given to how these rules affect Chemistry graduate students. A Final Program of Study must include a minimum of 30 hours of resident coursework at the University of Georgia. A Final Program of Study must include a minimum of 12 hours of letter-graded graduate courses (i.e., 6xxx-9xxx courses). M.S. chemistry students must include on their Final Program of Study: Four 3-credit letter-graded graduate courses; a maximum of one of these may be taken outside the chemistry department. One 1-credit letter-graded seminar course (i.e., CHEM 8120, 8130, 8140, or 8150). A minimum of 3 hours and a maximum of 6 hours of CHEM 7000 (Master's Research).
