Major Requirements

The undergraduate curriculum in chemistry is designed to provide instruction in each of the major areas of chemistry. It provides excellent training for those who intend to go to graduate school or professional schools of medicine, dentistry, veterinary medicine, law, and pharmacy, and for those seeking employment in the vast chemical research industry of New Jersey.

The degrees offered by the chemistry department are accredited by the American Chemical Society. A suggested sequence of courses leading to the B.A. degree in chemistry is outlined below. The department is very well equipped with current state-of-the-art research instrumentation in several fields of chemical inquiry. Chemistry majors are encouraged to participate in research conducted by the faculty starting as early as the sophomore or junior year, contingent on the student's progress.
