Your Experience

From creating new polymers to making the agriculture and energy industries eco-friendly, chemists are credited with many of the most innovative breakthroughs in science today. We’ll give you the comprehensive foundation you need to pursue a successful career in medicine, pharmaceuticals and forensic science.

You’ll explore the world of chemistry from all angles and learn to apply the scientific method while taking courses in analytical, general, organic, physical and biochemistry. And you’ll get practical experience in labs that include a sophisticated array of spectrometers and chromatographic systems. You also can individualize your experience by taking electives in specialized areas such as environmental science and biomedicine.

You’ll gain hands-on experience in a senior project or by interning with a local company such as Alexion, the Connecticut Agricultural Experiment Station and LabSynergy. Because of our small class sizes and highly accessible faculty, you’ll get plenty of support and the personal attention you need.
