Diploma in Chemistry
(2 years – 62 credit hours)
The Diploma in Chemistry is a two-year study program designed to equip its holders with adequate theoretical knowledge of chemistry as a science and effective practical entry level of skills in the field of chemistry. The program focuses on pairing theoretical explanations with practical work in actual chemistry labs. In addition, it follows a modern liberal arts approach by exposing the students to a sound knowledge of general sciences, the arts, study of the Omani culture, mastery of general computing skills, and efficient usage of Arabic and English languages.
Although the Diploma holders may exit the university education with this degree, they will also have opportunities to continue their education to complete a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry if they satisfy the requirements for admission to the B.S. in Mathematics program, then all the credits that are successfully completed in the Diploma program are transferable to the B.S. program.
