South Orange, NJ, United States
A chemistry degree can take you anywhere, from industry to government to academia. Some chemistry majors work in labs. Others hold jobs in environmental protection, law and policy, research and development or in many other areas. 

Overview

Our program prepares students for the path they choose to take. We offer two versions of this degree — one rigorous and focused; one more flexible. With a student–faculty ratio of less than 6:1, every student receives individual attention, gains extensive lab experience and works closely with faculty in our modern facilities.

The programme

We train students in the different disciplines of chemistry, preparing them for both immediate employment and graduate school. The B.S. with American Chemical Society (ACS) Certification is a rigorous program, ideal for students who will pursue graduate studies or work as chemists.

The non-ACS degree is a more flexible program, suited for students who plan to work in chemistry-related fields, such as environmental science, medicine and allied health professions. Lab experience is paramount throughout the program, and we strongly encourage undergraduate research. The Chemistry Honors Program - open by invitation only - provides further opportunities to work with faculty, and culminates in a senior thesis and graduation with honors.
