Chemistry, Biochemistry and Physics offer courses and programs that provide pre-professional training that prepare students for careers in medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, pharmacology and other health sciences.
Chemistry and its influence are everywhere from the materials in the car you drive, to the vitamins you take in the morning, to the laboratories where chemists are developing life-enhancing and disease controlling products.
A solid preparation in chemistry is essential for professionals in most scientific areas.
All chemistry and biochemistry graduates from Niagara do at least one year (4 credits) of independent research, supervised by a faculty member. These research experiences give students hands-on practice with problems of real-world importance and play an important role in a student’s professional development and preparation for graduate or professional school, or for the workforce.
This strong chemistry background also prepares students for graduate school, or positions in business, industry, pollution control, and ecology.
Our department offers four primary majors to undergraduates.
The Niagara University Science Training and Research (NUSTAR) Fellowship seeks to enable self-motivated, goal-oriented, and academically exceptional students to carry out high-impact and collaborative research with Niagara’s science faculty. Please note that you must still apply for admission to Niagara University.
