About Chemistry

Study with faculty who are in the top of their field! You’ll have the opportunity to work side-by-side with your professors in their labs (in a new chemistry building) in a program that emphasizes undergraduate research. Research will help you consolidate your understanding of chemistry gained in courses, and will provide realistic insights into the daily routines and working environment of a career chemist. Through research you’ll develop close working relationships with faculty, graduate students, and post-doctoral fellows.

A bachelor's degree in Chemistry and Chemical Biology will prepare you for a wide range of careers. You’ll be well qualified for direct employment or for graduate and professional studies in many areas of the basic and applied sciences. Three options for the Rutgers chemistry major (General ACS, Chemical Biology, and Environmental) lead to American Chemical Society (ACS) certified degrees. This program takes into consideration the specific needs of adult and nontraditional students and University College-New Brunswick endorses it as an adult-friendly & working-professional program.
