Chemistry Students from Immaculata University to be Admitted to Temple University’s Master’s in Forensic Chemistry
Immaculata University and Temple University have entered into an agreement to give Immaculata’s chemistry students the opportunity to earn a Bachelor of Science degree from Immaculata and continue into an accelerated Professional Science Master’s (PSM) degree in forensic chemistry from Temple University. Students can begin the 4+1 accelerated program in the fall of 2019.
Under the agreement, Immaculata undergraduate students admitted to the accelerated program undertake graduate work through Temple, beginning in their junior year at Immaculata, and then continue into the Temple graduate program full-time in a fifth year to complete the graduate degree. Additionally, Temple will waive the GRE exam requirement and application fee. The agreement will help students save time and money while earning an advanced degree.
“Immaculata University, committed to increasing educational opportunities for our students, has been working with top-ranked graduate programs to achieve that goal. Immaculata University’s outstanding science programs encourage undergraduate students to complete research that provides a strong foundation for success in graduate school,” states Dr. Angela Tekely, provost and vice president for Academic Affairs, Immaculata University. “This new partnership with Temple University creates an exciting opportunity for chemistry students who wish to pursue a future in forensic chemistry.”
