Studying Chemistry: The UC Advantage

TFrank E. Gannett Memorial Libraryhe chemistry major at UC gives you solid theoretical and practical foundation in the study of matter on both the macroscopic and atomic levels.

Supported by exceptional faculty and advanced instrumentation, chemistry students study composition, structure, properties, and reactions of matter with emphasis on atomic and molecular systems. The chemistry department at Utica College is certified by the American Chemical Society (ACS), and the major is designed to meet the needs of students whose principal interest is in chemistry, biochemistry, or medicine. 


The chemistry major offers four concentration options: 
  • General
  • Biochemistry
