Absolutely false. You can get a Master's in Chemistry and in Physics.So far, everything I've seen regarding a Masters in Chemistry has appeared to be it counts as terminal degree if someone started out pursuing a PhD and then decided not to continue. It was listed by Forbes as being one of the worst degrees for a job considering the expense vs. possible income.Your research does not provide a full picture. Master's degrees that are not just a "you didn't get a PhD" consolation prize are alive and well. I considered getting one myself before deciding to take a different direction with my career, and I've known a number of people who have received MS in Chem either as a terminal degree or along the way to a PhD.It is true that career opportunities for people with a Master's in Chem are more limited than PhD if you want to do hard core research/lab work, but to state that a Master's in Chem is not available except as a booby prize is flat wrong.d
