Program Description

Shinquin Program in Chemistry and Biochemistry

Our graduates are highly desired by industry and government employers for their laboratory skills and are well-qualified for admission to graduate and professional schools. The courses and labs required for these degrees assure that graduates are proficient in the fundamental principles of chemistry and prepared to apply these principles to specialized areas such as environmental, forensic, medicinal, and pharmaceutical chemistry.


Within the mission of Norwich University and the College of Science and Mathematics, the mission of the Chemistry and Biochemistry Department is to offer laboratory-intensive courses that provide an understanding of the chemical and biochemical aspects of the physical environment and to prepare students majoring in the discipline for careers in chemistry and biochemistry related fields as well as for further educational opportunities.

The progress of all students majoring in chemistry and biochemistry will be evaluated by the department at the end of the first and second years. Students receiving an unsatisfactory evaluation will be requested to change majors.


  • Graduates will have a good understanding and broad knowledge of chemistry in all five areas of the discipline: analytical, biochemistry, inorganic, organic, and physical.

  • Graduates will be capable of performing independently and competently in the laboratory.

  • Graduates will be prepared for successful employment in a profession employing chemistry and will be prepared for graduate or professional school.
