Graduate Program Overview
"Saving Sharks" - Doctoral student Eric Stroud discusses his work in the labs at Seton Hall.
The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry
in the College of Arts and Sciences is strongly committed to collaborative research with other institutions, particularly the local chemical industry in northern New Jersey. Research opportunities are available in analytical, inorganic, organic, physical, and computational chemistry, as well as in biochemistry. The University’s location affords students unique opportunities for interaction with scientists at a multitude of chemical-related industries.
MS program options:
- A research-based MS with a thesis (30 credits)
- A coursework-based MS without a thesis (research experience is optional)
- MS with a minor in business administration (34 credits)
- A research-based MS leading to PhD candidacy (30 credits)
Seton Hall has recently completed a comprehensive $35 million upgrade of McNulty Hall, home of the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry. In addition to state-of-the-art research and teaching laboratories, the Science and Technology Center will offer innovative and energy-efficient teaching and research facilities. With its flexible labs, glass walls and “green” approach, this landmark building will significantly enhance existing and future education and discovery within the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry.
All faculty members lead research programs in cutting-edge areas such as gas and liquid chromatography, chemical modification of surfaces, atomistic simulation of thin films, interfaces and biomolecules, properties of polymetallic complexes, biophysics of nucleic acids, lipid and membrane protein dynamics, synthetic routes for dendritic polymers, carbohydrate synthesis, and advanced catalytic materials.
