About

A degree in Chemistry from Frostburg State University is your key to a career full of engaging challenges and innovations that can help the entire world. 

Overview

With three concentrations to choose from, the Chemistry program from Frostburg State University can prepare you for a variety of careers in medicine, biomedical research, pharmacy and industry positions, or you can take advantage of FSU’s enviable acceptance rate into graduate programs and prepare yourself for a Masters or Ph.D. The chemistry program focuses on active learning and real-world projects at a time when experience is becoming more important to landing a first job. We offer a huge variety of experiential opportunities, including faculty-led research projects and classes that foster hands-on learning, to make you stand out to future employers.

  • Choose your focus in a traditional chemistry track, professional preparation or biochemistry.
  • Design your own research project and create a presentation and portfolio to show off your knowledge, skills and abilities.

Highlights

  • Participate in ongoing research on topics including the active medical components in black cohosh plants, natural gas extraction from Marcellus Shale and new eco-friendly solvents for organic reactions.
  • Perform experiments in state-of-the-art facilities to get the most out of each and every lab. FSU chemistry students work with instruments and technology typically reserved for graduate student use only at other institutions.

  • Showcase your work at conferences like the American Chemical Society National Meeting & Exposition or the FSU College of Liberal Arts and Sciences Undergraduate Research Symposium.

  • Relax at registration time, knowing you’ll get into the classes you need. FSU strives to have no waiting lists for General Chemistry courses, which can fill quickly due to the many programs that make use of their solid, foundational content.

  • Excel in our newly redesigned General Chemistry I course, which now implements more student-centered, active learning and produces students who outperform their peers in the same course nationwide.

  • Meet other Chemistry students and join in great events with the FSU Pre-Med Society or the Student Members of the American Chemical Society (SMACS).

  • Get to know fellow students in the natural and health sciences and experience the strong relationship between chemistry and biology. Our biochemistry concentration connects students with cutting-edge science where chemistry, biology and medicine meet.

  • Prepare for studies beyond your bachelor’s with a chemistry department that excels at placing students in graduate programs. A vast majority of our grads take on additional studies with pharmacy schools, medical schools and PhD programs in chemistry or biology.

Career outlook

A degree in a chemistry field can lead to many different occupations, including jobs in food sciences, medicine/pharmacy, biochemistry, chemical engineering and forensics, just to name a few. Prospects for chemistry careers vary based on sector (government, academia or industry), level of education and specific field. Biomedical chemists, for example, are expected to see significant growth in employment as aging generations live longer and create more demand for medical innovations and supplies.
