Research with some of industry’s brightest minds as you prepare for a career in one of the most applicable fields of science.

Bridging the gap between the life sciences and physical sciences, we live among the discoveries and creations of chemists: from the synthetic fabrics we wear, to the detergents used to wash them, from pharmaceuticals to plastics, cleaner fuels to more abundant food.

In the chemistry bachelor’s program, you’ll learn the fundamentals of the five areas of chemistry (organic, inorganic, analytical, biochemistry and physical chemistry) to build a strong foundation for the field. Then you'll explore advanced concepts in areas that Stevens has unique strengths, including natural products, medicinal chemistry, computational chemistry, polymer chemistry and instrumental analysis.

The chemistry bachelor’s program incorporates hands-on research to develop essential skills like open-ended problem solving which are necessary for a career in chemistry. You'll have the unique opportunity to participate in a year of research in areas like drug discovery and medicinal chemistry with expert faculty who are some of the brightest minds in the field. 

Home to Dr. Irving Langmuir, a former Stevens faculty member and winner of the Nobel Prize in chemistry in 1932 for his discoveries and investigations in surface chemistry, the chemistry program continues to be led by faculty who have valuable industry experience and play leading roles in many areas of chemistry and engineering including computational, analytical, and organic chemistry.

The Stevens chemistry program is approved by the American Chemical Society (ACS).
