  • Benefits of an MSUM Chemistry Education Degree
    American Chemical Society approved
    MSUM’s Chemistry & Biochemistry Department is on the Approved List of the  American Chemical Society (ACS), ensuring you receive the highest level of professional training for faculty, library resources, laboratory space, equipment, and curriculum. Fewer than half of the nation’s chemistry departments have earned this distinction.
    Faculty mentoring
    MSUM chemistry faculty are passionate about teaching. All of the department’s professors have a doctorate in one of these areas of chemistry specialization: biochemistry, analytical, physical, organic, inorganic or education. By employing chemistry “specialists” rather than “generalists,” the character of MSUM chemistry faculty matches that of much larger universities.
    Personal attention
    Introductory classes average 30-90 students while upper-level classes average 5-18 students, giving you the personal mentoring and hands-on experience a chemistry degree requires.
    Innovative facilities
    Langseth Hall unites students studying biology, chemistry and physics under one roof. Our chemistry laboratories are among the best equipped in the region and are available to undergraduate students, giving you access to outstanding instruments and powerful electronic databases.
    Dedicated student lab space
    You will have access to lab space solely for faculty-mentored undergraduate research, which generally involves 30 or more students annually. MSU Moorhead is a leader in engaging undergraduate students in faculty-mentored research, with some students performing research as early as their freshman year.
