Opening of the Chemistry Master’s Study Program, Complete the Master’s Study Program at the FMIPA, University of Jember

Based on the Decree of the Minister of Education, Culture, Research, and Technology of the Republic of Indonesia Number 99/E/O/2024 dated January 11, 2024, FMIPA UNEJ has a Chemistry Masters Study Program. “The Chemistry Master’s Study Program completes the four master’s study programs at FMIPA UNEJ, after Mathematics, Biology, and Physics,” said Deputy Dean I of FMIPA, Drs. Siswoyo, M.Sc., Ph.D. The opening of the chemistry master’s study program has been prepared for some time to meet the response of FMIPA chemistry undergraduate alumni in particular and the community in general.

“FMIPA chemistry alumni, especially those who want to study further, can now take part in the chemistry master’s study program; people around Jember or East Java can also join us,” he said. It was stated that new student registration would soon be announced after the official appointment of the head of the chemistry master’s study program by the Chancellor of the University of Jember. “The Master of Chemistry will prepare everything for accepting new students, including the selection mechanism,” continued Siswoyo, who is also a lecturer in the Chemistry Department at FMIPA.

Some time ago, Drs. Achmad Sjaifullah, M.Sc., Ph.D., Dean of FMIPA UNEJ, also spoke about the opening of the chemistry master’s study program. “We will have a chemistry master’s study program; the team has worked and proposed its establishment; hopefully, in the near future, the decree will be issued,” he said. This good news also added to the joy of FMIPA residents after, at the end of last year, the biology master’s program received SUPERIOR accreditation from LAMSAMA.

After the biology master’s study program, the physics master’s study program is also currently in the process of applying for accreditation to LAMSAMA. “Let’s pray and help support the physics master’s study program, which is currently working on applying for LAMSAMA accreditation,” he concluded. UNEJ’s Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences now has four undergraduate study programs and four master’s study programs, namely mathematics, physics, chemistry, and biology.
