Congratulations to the Department of
Chemistry and Biochemistry!
According to the 2011 publication by the
Diverse Issues in Higher Education, Jackson State University ranks 3rd in Bachelors, 2nd
in Master’s, and 4th in Doctoral degrees in Physical Sciences awarded to
African Americans in the country. Physical Sciences include
disciplines such as Astronomy, Chemistry, Physics and interdisciplinary
Materials Science. JSU awards both chemistry and physics bachelor
degrees, but only awards chemistry degrees on the Master’s and Doctoral
levels. These high rankings are a testimony to the quality of
the chemistry programs and the effort of the faculty to nurture our students.
We believe that the high caliber of faculty, top nationally ranked
research productivity, and excellent education and research programs are
some of the key factors for the success.
