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 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.
