Chemistry and Pharmaceutical Science
The Department of Chemistry and Pharmaceutical Science at the Florham Campus offers the ACS-certified (*) B. S. in Chemistry degree in addition to the M. S. in Chemistry. Programs are described here. Also available are several concentrations at the undergraduate and graduate levels in addition to undergraduate minor programs.
Our department is extremely well equipped with modern instruments including 300 MHz NMR, liquid chromatography, GC-MS, high resolution FTIR, and Raman equipment. See the link at the left for a list of additional equipment.
The B. S. in Chemistry program is the primary degree for entry into the chemical and pharmaceutical industry and also for graduate programs in chemistry, biochemistry, pharmaceutical chemistry, bio-medical engineering, and many other areas. This degree program is especially suitable for potential applicants to professional schools in medicine, pharmacy, and veterinary medicine. Pre-med students usually take the MCAT exam in their junior years after completing organic chemistry.
The M. S. programs are designed for working chemists in local industries who want to extend their knowledge in modern chemistry and pharmaceutical chemistry.
* [Since 1977. Certification by the American Chemical Society provides national-level recognition that the Department has undergone in-depth scrutiny of its faculty, course offerings, equipment, and library holdings in addition to periodic reviews every five years. The ACS certifies that our Chemistry graduates in the B. S. program have studied a rigorous academic program suitable for entry to graduate school or an industrial position.]
