The Department of Chemistry and Physics of the Halmos College of Natural Sciences and Oceanography at Nova Southeastern University (NSU) fosters students’ academic success by facilitating student-faculty interactions, offering a chemistry curriculum that conforms to the high quality standards recommended by the American Chemical Society (ACS), and recognizing the value of laboratory skills for students  —an essential experience for testing scientific ideas that leads to discovery and innovation.

Faculty are actively engaged with students in a wide range of research topics in exceptional teaching laboratory facilities. We provide our students with strong curricula in a chemistry major, a chemistry minor and a physics minor to prepare them for their future careers.

The chemistry major is a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry with two tracks (non-ACS track and ACS track). Both of them combine an advanced chemistry curriculum with significant studies in physics, biology, and mathematics. The major is intended for those who wish to pursue a career in chemistry-related fields or secondary education teaching, and who wish to enter a graduate program in chemistry or in health-related fields such as medicine, pharmacy, dentistry, optometry, and law.

Chemistry Major

The chemistry minor is intended to further develop students’ quantitative and analytical skills by expanding their knowledge beyond the introductory level. The minors complement curricula in other disciplines ranging from biology, mathematics and engineering, to computer sciences. It is also essential for education majors who intend to teach physical sciences in high school.
