Welcome to the website of the Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry at the State University of New York College at Oneonta. The department has been offering programs approved by the American Chemical Society for over forty years, one of the longest professionally recognized departments on the SUNY Oneonta campus. Our department offers three distinct degree programs; Chemistry, Chemistry-Biochemistry Track and Adolescence Education-Chemistry. The Chemistry B.S. degree offers the option of certification to the American Chemical Society and includes coursework in the five primary disciplines in chemistry (inorganic, organic, analytical, physical and biochemistry). The Chemistry-Biochemistry track B.S. degree is the ONLY degree track on campus where the courses required for admission to most U.S. medical schools are contained within the degree. Those wishing to pursue medical school acceptance can thus major in this area and not have to take any courses outside their major! The third major degree available is in Adolescence Education-Chemistry. This degree track is coordinated in close cooperation with the Secondary Education department at Oneonta and leads to NYS certification for teaching high school chemistry.

Regardless of your general area of interest, we would encourage you to consider chemistry and/or biochemistry and adolescence education as part of your future. The top-flight programs we can offer you here at SUNY Oneonta will serve you well! We invite you to call us or come visit our department at your leisure. Private tours coordinated with a campus Admissions tour are available and we would be pleased to have the Chairperson or any faculty member sit down with you to discuss your options at SUNY Oneonta.
