M.S. Chemistry Student My Statement Of Purpose

A statement of purpose – SOP –  is an essay written by an applicant applying to a college, graduate school or college. A statement of purpose is part of the documents required by many universities during the admission process. It tells the school who the applicant is, your motivation for picking the school and the course of study and long term goals. Statement of purpose is variously referred to as SOP letter, application essay, personal background, and objectives of the study.

Statement Of Purpose Sample

I am writing on behalf of my application to study for a doctoral degree at the University of Southern North Dakota at Hoople in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry. I want very much to study analytical chemistry in this program, in particular, because of my very favourable impression of this university and the outstanding research accomplishments of the faculty in my areas of special interest. I hope to be able to contribute to this research community.

I feel strongly that my undergraduate education at Langley College and Hudson University has given me a firm foundation in Analytical Chemistry and Physical Chemistry. I was particularly fortunate to work in my junior year on a research project with professor S. Cannizzaro, determining the contents of tartaric acid in oenophoric samples. This work resulted in an accepted research paper and presentations at several symposia. A graduate course on surface plasmon spectroscopy, which I took at UC Santa Theresa, has further contributed to my confidence to pursue additional studies.

I am finishing my B.S. in Chemistry and Biochemistry from Hudson University in a few months. I hope to obtain someday a job as a university professor. I am attracted to this lifestyle, the freedom to decide what one wants to research and the stimulation of the academic community. I am interested in how physical and analytical research can be used to avoid mineral and resource depletion studied at the newly dedicated Horticultural Research Center at USND. I seek to become a first-rate PhD researcher in the field of analytical chemistry while at the same time I also constantly scrutinize the principles of science and erudition in the light of practical applications of principles and theory based on human need analysis.

In addition to the analytical determination of oenophores, I have conducted research with Dr Shiu Sisako on the behaviour of electrodes (palladium, praseodymium and francium) in the presence of caproic acid in both acidic and basic solutions, from 9/2010-present. At the University of Southern North Dakota at Hoople, I would be specially honoured by being able to study with Professors W. Gibbs and S. Arrhenius. I thank you for considering my application for study as well as a research assistantship.
