Cutting-edge facilities and equipment contribute directly to the esteemed learning experience provided by the Chemistry and Physical Sciences faculty. You will have many opportunities to work hands-on with the latest technology that will prepare you for today’s world of science.
The Chemistry and Physical Sciences program offers the distinctive opportunity for you to be involved in faculty research, in some cases as early as sophomore year. Faculty-student research encourages your interest in the field of chemistry, provides you experiential learning with modern instrumentation, and fosters collaboration with other students and science faculty.
In the Chemistry and Physical Sciences program, you will have additional opportunities to be immersed in your field, including the Chemistry Club affiliated with the American Chemical Society (NYC only); Beta Beta Beta (Tri-Beta), the National Biological Honor Society (both campuses); and Sigma Xi, the Scientific Research Society (both campuses).
In our undergraduate programs, you are immersed in ongoing research projects, gaining real-world experience in our state-of-the-art facilities. Both the Chemistry and Biochemistry majors are accredited by the American Chemical Society. Learning from and researching alongside renowned science faculty, you get a first-hand opportunity to develop the skills you’ll need for further study or to embark in a career in many exciting, related fields, from engineering to pharmaceuticals.
Success Starts Here
"I chose Pace because the Forensic Science major is very unique as compared to other programs, and there is a great success rate in job placements for graduates. Forensic Science is solely based on facts and data collected during investigations, and as someone who values justice in our society, I wanted to contribute in the best way I knew how, which is the scientific approach. This major combines science and criminal justice, which made it an easy choice for me."
Our graduate programs prepare you to dive into the dynamic job market in some of the nation’s fastest growing fields. You will engage with the latest technology in our specialized laboratories and collaborate on research opportunities with professionals locally, nationally, and internationally.
