Formulating your future
Do you want to learn about pharmaceutical sciences or how a MRI scan works? Do you want to help invent the next generation of biodegradable plastics? Do you dream of making solar panels more efficient to help combat climate change? The study of chemistry is the study of curiosity. Is there a future cancer treatment to be extracted from plants? How can we design the next novel materials for coatings, dyes and therapeutics? What goes into the analysis of crime scene evidence? And what in the world is Nano-Tech? The wide world of chemistry is as diverse as the elements on the periodic table and is applicable in several fields including:
- Materials science
- Forensic science
- Food science
Susquehanna’s program, approved by the American Chemical Society for its excellence, gives you access to accomplished faculty, a coherent curriculum focused on hands-on, problem-based learning and a modern, well-maintained infrastructure. Get hands-on experience with lasers, fluorescence and NMR (nuclear magnetic resonance) spectrometers — over $1 million in equipment.
Your time at Susquehanna will be spent working in cutting-edge labs. You can participate in original research projects as early as your first year and you can use your chemistry education as a springboard for graduate programs, medical school or other pre-professional programs, a job as a teacher or in the industry. As a chemistry major, you will be in demand for lucrative careers.
At Susquehanna, you can satisfy your endless curiosity to childhood questions and more. Our faculty will challenge you. Opportunities to conduct research will excite you. And lessons learned from scientific setbacks will only propel you to succeed.
