Students who are majoring in biology, chemistry, and mathematics can also work their way toward full licensure in teaching and working with students in grades 6-12.
Students who graduate from our chemistry programs will have demonstrated working knowledge of chemistry, lab work, analyzing and presenting data, and the ability to evaluate research literature. Students will have also gained invaluable experience working in labs both on and off-campus and participating in the deaf and hard of hearing community at Gallaudet and in Washington, D.C.
The Chemistry & Physics Program offers a variety of undergraduate research projects during the academic year and paid summer internships in the following fields: environmental chemistry, nanotechnology, organic synthesis, computational chemistry/modeling, and pharmacognosy. See CSTR for more information on faculty research and internship opportunities.
Undergraduate students have the opportunity to apply their knowledge hands-on with instrumentation such as high-pressure liquid chromatography (HPLC), gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (GC/MS), atomic absorption spectroscopy (AAS), Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), and ultraviolet-visible spectroscopy (UV-Vis) instruments. The chemistry program also has a supercomputer and two laptop workstations capable of high-performance computing.
Our Chemistry programs provide excellent opportunities for students to gain research and professional experience. Students can find a paid summer internship with other universities, governmental and industrial labs, and/or participate in research projects with faculty on campus.
