Program Overview

The chemistry curriculum at Manhattan College is designed exclusively for the undergraduate student. We have 10 full-time faculty of professorial rank with doctorates with a wide variety of specializations, as well as adjunct faculty and lab assistants. These faculty members are first and foremost teachers interested in and capable of teaching undergraduate students. They also recognize the necessity of research to keep abreast of and be a part of the changes taking place in their area of specialization. Their research work is carried out with the help of their undergraduate students. Our history of teaching excellence has always included introducing our students to sound scientific research.

The Chemistry program at Manhattan College is approved by the American Chemical Society (ACS), the national organization that measures programs for standards of excellence. Our program features a hands-on laboratory component that prepares students for work in industry or graduate school.

Our graduates do exceptionally well. Many chemistry graduates go on to pursue their master’s and doctoral degrees at some of the nation’s top universities including Brown, Princeton, NYU, Georgetown, Columbia, U.C. Berkeley and Yale.
