In the inter-related and inter-disciplinary world of today, a sound knowledge of Chemistry has become an imperative that undergirds virtually all developments.

Whether it is in the field of industrial research and applications, or basic research into the interplay of bio-sciences and the material world, deep insights into and knowledge of chemical structures and processes have become a sine qua non for delving into the intricacies of all known matter (physical, organic and inorganic), and for employing it in the best interests of humanity.

The Postgraduate Course in Chemistry (MSC) at Don Bosco University is designed to equip our graduates with the in-depth theoretical and practical knowledge they need to pursue careers in a wide array of academic and industrial settings.
