Overview

Program 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 Frostburg State University 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.

Put lessons into practice with small lab classes that allow professors to interact with every student in the room, every period. Courses are taught by doctorate faculty, not teaching assistants, a common practice at many schools.

Learn from professional chemists who have won teaching awards, developed new ways to synthesize compounds and published work in scientific journals like the Journal of the American Chemical Society and Organic Letters.Take part in research projects under the guidance of your own teachers. All FSU chemistry professors sponsor student participation in projects started by both students and faculty.
