I have currently began the process of investigating graduate programs in Chemistry.  Specificly Master's programs.  In my investigative work I discovered some schools are offering a Masters of Chemistry (Professional Science Masters Degree) wrather than a M.S. in chemistry.  They are both considered graduate degrees.  The only major difference between the programs are a M.S. in chemistry requires a thesis.  My question is how do employers view the Professional Science Masters Degree?  Do employers feel this is a suitable degree for someone searching for a higher level research position?  If anyone could give me some opinions on this degree it would be greatly appreciated.
