Chemistry & Biochemistry Department
The Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry at UMass Dartmouth provides an excellent education, preparing its students for careers in industry, forensics & teaching, as well as further education in graduate, medical, veterinary, dental and pharmacy school.
The department has a very active research program which includes two major research centers (the Botulinum Research Center and the Cranberry Health Research Center). There are active research projects in all five divisions of chemistry (analytical, biological, inorganic, organic, & physical). Graduate students can conduct their research as a student in the M.S. program or through the joint Ph.D. program with UMass Lowell. For undergraduates, research is a required component of the degree program and one of the greatest tools in preparing our graduates for future employment and further education.
