About

The Department of Chemistry offers undergraduate major and minor programs in chemistry along with graduate training (M.S. and Ph.D.) in a modern facility with state-of-the-art instrumentation. The undergraduate course of study for chemistry, certified by the American Chemical Society, prepares students for careers as chemists in pharmaceutical, chemical, and consumer products industries, and for advanced training in top-ranked Ph.D. programs. Additionally, many chemistry graduates continue their education in medical, dental, or pharmacy schools.

 

 

 

At the graduate level, the faculty mentor students in cutting-edge research published in the most highly regarded international journals and documented in patents. The department features state-of-the art research facilities. Upon graduation, our students typically go on to postdoctoral appointments, desirable jobs in academia or in the chemical industry. The greater New York metropolitan area is home to a large number of chemical and pharmaceutical companies.
