Chemistry & Biochemistry

We live in a time when private and public decision making increasingly rests upon scientific findings and data. Chemistry and Biochemistry are accelerating the development of many new products and policies in fields from health care to homeland security.

The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at Georgian Court University delivers an in-depth undergraduate education comprised of scientific fundamentals and fieldwork that enable you to understand how those principles relate to today’s world.

Opportunities abound for entering medical school or graduate work, teaching, or pursuing scientific careers at pharmaceutical companies, health care organizations, and government agencies.

The department includes world-class faculty members from a diverse range of applicable backgrounds. At GCU, your academic experiences are offered in a close-knit setting that engages you to fully grasp and apply the principles presented.

The Honors Research Program in Chemistry is an opportunity for distinction, offered by the department, to those majors demonstrating exceptional ability and commitment to the discipline. The program is by invitation only, and students are informed about eligibility during the beginning of the spring semester of their junior year.
