Degrees offered
  • ACS certified BS degree
  • Conforms to all requirements set by the American
    Chemical Society
  • Non-ACS certified BS degree
  • Offers more flexibility, for those interested in
    other areas of specialization (e.g., biology,
    education, business), transfer students, etc.
  • Specialization in Forensic Chemistry option

Research can be the most rewarding aspect of an
undergraduate chemistry degree. Students grow
both professionally and personally in ways that
are not possible through traditional classroom
and laboratory classes. American Chemical
Society, Committee on Professional Training
Faculty have published 26 papers (many with
student co-authors) in peer-reviewed journals
since 2005
15
Students present their research at local,
regional, and national meetings
Celebration of student achievement National ACS
meetings
16
Student Groups SCA GSE
Students in the Department participate in a
variety of social activities

Forensic Chemistry Specialization
Accompanies B.S. in Chemistry To complete the
requirement 2 Criminal Justice Courses 2
Forensic Chemistry Courses Research or
Internship Experience Note students can take
any of the courses without completing the
specialization
22
TCNJ students who graduated with a BS in
Chemistry/Forensic Chemistry Specialization are
now at, for example Graduate Schools PhD
Programs (e.g. University of Delaware) MS
Programs (e.g. Drexel University, George
Washington U) Government Labs FBI Secret
Service Homeland Security Corporate
Labs Merck Bristol Myers Squibb

Bottom Line Creating a Unique
Transcript/Resume/ Graduate
TCNJ Students can list Unique Advanced Courses
(Mass Spectrometry, Medicinal
Chemistry) Internships Research
Experiences Publications/Presentations at
National Meetings Practical Experience in Using
Equipment/ Analytical Instrumentation Minors,
Specializations, Self-Designed
Majors References (who know them!) TCNJ
Students have been successful in industry,
government, and graduate school positions, so we
generate students of known quality
