The Bachelor of Science Program in Chemistry is approved as having met the requirements set forth by the Committee on Professional Training of the American Chemical Society. Graduates of this program are eligible to receive certification from the American Chemical Society. The Chemistry and Biochemistry Department is one of twelve departments within the State System of Higher Education to have this prestigious affiliation.
ESU is located in close proximity to several chemical and pharmaceutical companies. This provides many opportunities for chemistry students to explore internships and employment in their area of study.
Chemistry students may participate in undergraduate research programs. Under the supervision of a faculty mentor, these programs allow students to learn independently and solve problems. Students are exposed to advanced, specialized areas of chemistry and biochemistry.
Chemistry students also have many internship opportunities at regional chemical and pharmaceutical companies such as Sanofi Pasteur, Royal Chemicals, and DSM.
The ESU Chemistry Club is a Student Affiliate Chapter of the American Chemical Society and is open for membership to all ESU students with an interest in chemistry. The club members are very active in campus events and public service. The members plan field trips to local and regional industries where chemistry plays a major role in research and production. The ESU Chemistry Club members produce chemical demonstrations that are used to entertain and educate diverse audiences. The members plan and prepare the presentations under the supervision of Chemistry and Biochemistry Department faculty.
