Courses in biochemistry, inorganic chemistry, statistics and specialized courses in chemistry or biology may be arranged and selected by the student in consultation with faculty.
Research in the field of organic chemistry of natural products takes three paths. These paths are the isolation and characterization of new natural substances; the synthesis of new or improved syntheses of better-known natural substances; and the study of the relation of molecular structure to biological response. Chemical research in each of these areas is coupled with biological testing. Research involving isolation and synthetic chemistry requires the student to develop expertise in separation techniques, such as the several methods of chromatography and spectrometric identification of molecules. Successful investigation in structure/activity relationships requires the student to become familiar with statistical methods of analysis.

Assistantships and FellowshipsAssistantships and fellowships are awarded to students who have demonstrated scholarship and academic promise, and whose education and experience enable them to assist in the teaching mission of the college through laboratory or classroom instruction and research. Students who hold an assistantship must be enrolled for full-time study as defined by graduate policies, and be making satisfactory progress toward completing their degree.
Major funding for graduate students comes from two major sources:
- State University of New York Graduate Assistantships in support of the teaching mission of the college (a.k.a. GAs – otherwise known as “TAs”); and
- Research Project Assistantships funded by the Research Foundation of New York (RPAs).
Studyportals Tip: Students can search online for independent or external scholarships that can help fund their studies. Check the scholarships to see whether you are eligible to apply. Many scholarships are either merit-based or needs-based.
