PhD in Chemistry
A doctorate degree in Chemistry which may be taken as a dual-degree with a PhD in Chemistry at the University of Houston.
The program aims to provide advanced graduate training in chemistry which would allow successful students to carry out independent research, and pursue careers in academic, government, research and industrial institutions. These highly trained chemists are needed in the solution of various national developmental problems.
Creating a Joint Academic Program
Proposals for Joint Academic Programs are covered by specific agreements on the implementation of a joint-degree or dual degree program with partner universities. As new academic programs that are essentially anchored on the combined strengths of existing programs, these will have to go through review by the University Curriculum Committee and the eventual approval of the UP President and Board of Regents.
OIL Diliman helps facilitate the forging of the agreements between UP Diliman through an Academic Unit and the international partner university. The Publications and University Council Secretariat Section of the Office of University Registrar facilitates the review of proposals co-formulated by the Academic Unit and its counterpart unit in the international partner university.
