Are you considering majoring or minoring in chemistry?

The undergraduate adviser for Fall 2014 / Spring 2015 is Professor Maria Contel. Please e-mail her with your name and CUNYFirst EMPLID number to set up an appointment or ask a question.

The Department of Chemistry offers the following degrees: bachelor of science, bachelor of arts and bachelor of arts: chemistry teacher.

  • The bachelor of science is the most rigorous course of study and is intended for students whose careers will be as chemists, including those planning further study in graduate school in chemistry or biochemistry.
  • The bachelor of arts degree is advised for prehealth professionals, as it leaves time to pursue the necessary course work in biology required for professional programs. Students interested in medical or other professional schools are strongly advised to discuss their plans with the campus pre-professional adviser Dr. Steven Silbering.
  • Students who are interested in teaching high school after graduation are advised to explore the bachelor of arts: chemistry teacher, as it leaves time to pursue course work in education.
