Overview

Chemistry and Biochemistry graduates at Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania have repeatedly demonstrated the quality of their preparation at BU by the high level of performance in graduate chemistry programs, professional programs such as medicine, secondary school teaching, and in the many chemically related industrial firms. 

BU's biochemistry option is an excellent choice for those interested in a career in medicine or veterinary school and as a stepping-stone into forensic chemistry.

Why BU?

  • Unlike large public universities, you'll never have a teaching assistant in any of your lab classes. You'll never be in a chemistry lab section with more than 18 students.
  • Our instrument suite is comparable to or better than many private schools and is fully accessible by students, who get hands-on experience with these instruments.
  • We have paid research internships for qualified students to work one-on-one with faculty. Routinely, these students receive travel funds to present their research results at national science conferences, such as the annual American Chemical Society Meeting.
