“Our upper-level chemistry classes are small so our students have a great opportunity to get to know their instructors and get one-on-one interaction with them.” - Dr. John D. Patton, Department Chair & Assistant Professor of Chemistry
Chemistry Education Major
The chemistry education degree offers students a chance to teach chemistry at the high school level. The degree offers a blend of classes from the chemistry and education fields.
- Chemistry majors get hands-on experience with instrumentation including a Gas Chromatograph, High-Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC), Spectrophotometer and Analytical Balances.
- The student/professor ratio in the upper-level classes is low allowing the student one-on-one interactions with the professor.
- For the past two years, all chemistry and physics graduates have applied and been accepted into graduate school
- Students majoring in chemistry have an opportunity to be a part of a SBU’s Undergraduate Research Experience (SURE). Students work with a faculty member over the summer on a research project. In addition to gaining research experience, the student is paid a stipend.
