The Department of Chemistry offers both a B.S. and a B.A. major as well as a minor in Chemistry. The Department’s programs have been approved by the American Chemical Society (ACS) and graduates fulfilling ACS requirements will be eligible for ACS certification.

The Department of Chemistry at Stonehill College educates students in the chemical sciences by providing them with chemical knowledge, technical training, and the ability to think logically and analytically. This education covers the traditional chemical disciplines as well as those chemical disciplines that will have the strongest impact on society in the future. The Department instills a strong sense of professional ethics and responsibility in the students enrolled in the chemistry program.

The B.S. and B.A. programs in chemistry offer fundamental training in inorganic, organic, physical, and analytical chemistry requiring a basic understanding of physics and calculus. Chemistry electives in advanced topics and in biochemistry are also offered. The department instills upon its students the ability to think broadly, creatively and independently within the field and to communicate this ability both in writing and orally. To these ends the Department provides many opportunities both during the academic year and during the summer for students to become involved in both undergraduate research and industrial internships. The culmination of this research is often co-authorship on conference presentations and publications in scholarly journals. In addition, each junior and senior Chemistry major presents two departmental seminars covering information from the current chemical literature. Each senior writes and defends a thesis (usually relating to research he/she has completed).

Both the B.S. and B.A. programs are flexible enough to allow the students to pursue objectives such as secondary school teaching, industrial, clinical or governmental employment, or to attend graduate school. They also provide an excellent basis for entrance into professional fields such as medicine, dentistry, nutrition and psychology.
