As you browse our web page, you will discover that our department provides a variety of exciting opportunities for students to engage in while progressing through the chemistry program. We offer a broad range of baccalaureate degrees in chemistry to prepare students for careers in teaching, medicine, forensics, research, and/or graduate studies in chemistry. The department also offers a master's degree through the Master of Science Natural Sciences program. Our classes are well structured and are conducted by a dynamic, world class, faculty who are dedicated to the success of each student. Moreover, our students work closely with the faculty on cutting-edge research projects in all areas of chemistry whereby they are able to obtain invaluable one-on-one training. Additionally, we encourage our students to present their research findings at state, regional, and national conferences to enhance and solidify their professional growth and development.
The Master of Science in the Natural Sciences with a Chemistry Track at Columbus State University is intended to provide students with a curriculum that consists of core and elective courses in chemistry.
Chemistry Major Blake Pritchett (center) was chosen as the 2016 recipient of the Royal Crown Cola International Prem Virmani Scholarship awarded by Cott. The scholarship is just one piece of a strong relationship between Cott and the Department of Chemistry at CSU that has been forged by Mr. Prim Virmani, Former Senior VP of Science&Research (left), and Dr. Floyd Jackson, Chem. Dept. Chair (right). Mr. Pritchett was recognized at a luncheon in her honor attended by representatives from the College of Letters and Science, the Department of Chemistry, and Cott.
This week four undergraduates and two graduate students presented original research at the Southeastern Meeting of the American Chemical Society in Columbia, South Carolina.
