The M.S. Program in Nanoscience is ideal for students who want to enter the workforce in nanoscience as well as for students who wish to enter doctoral programs.

This program offers students unique opportunities to conduct leading-edge research in the field at one of 11 CUNY campuses. Students have access to the Advanced Science Research Center at the CUNY Graduate Center (CUNY ASRC),  which includes state-of-the-art laboratories, research facilities, and a 5,000-square-foot nanofabrication facility. This program positions students for employment in the rapidly expanding nanoscience sector that includes electronics/semiconductors, textiles, medical diagnostics, and energy, as well as biotechnology, food science, forensics, the environment, and national security. Graduates will also be well-positioned to secure admission to competitive doctoral programs.

No GRE Required

There is no minimum GRE score; instead, students must demonstrate proficiency in quantitative skills and reasoning. Applicants should have a bachelor’s degree or its equivalent from a four-year accredited university with a 3.0 GPA on a 4.0 scale in subject-related courses.

Affordable Tuition

Master’s students at the Graduate Center who are residents of New York State and registered for a minimum of 12 credits per semester will pay a flat fee for tuition. Out-of-state residents and students taking less than 12 credits will be charged on a per-credit basis.

Flexible Scheduling

Our flexible class schedule allows students to work part-time while they complete their master’s degree.

Nanoscience on the Map of Science

An article in Nature Nanotechnology shows where Nanoscience fits in on the map of science. Nanoscience has the strongest ties to Materials Science, with strong connections to Chemistry, Biomedical, and Engineering sciences. Nanoscience research is becoming more and more important in traditional disciplines.

From an alumnus

The fact that I had access to the lab, the clean room, and I was able to work with the equipment, it really gave me an edge in the industry.

Why Nanoscience?

Nanoscience is an interdisciplinary field that focuses on understanding the chemical and physical properties of objects at the nanoscale and their unique emergent properties. It simultaneously draws upon the concepts found in chemistry, physics, biology, materials science, and engineering, and consequently serves as an interdisciplinary nexus in science. The Graduate Center is one of the few schools to offer this type of degree.

An Interdisciplinary Curriculum

Students entering the STEM workforce confront constantly increasing skill requirements. Students in this program will gain significant classroom experience in key nanoscience concepts and theories from chemistry, physics, and materials science, as well as actual research experience designing experiments and analyzing and interpreting the data.
