3:1 student to faculty ratio
DelVal is one of a few small, private colleges to be accredited by the American Chemical Society (ACS). The Department of Chemistry boasts a 3:1 student to faculty ratio, allowing for faculty mentoring, faculty/student research teams, and one-on-one academic relationships.
We now offer a specialization biochemistry. Biochemistry is an interdisciplinary field between biology and chemistry. A student graduating with a B.S. in chemistry and a biochemistry specialization will be prepared for either an entry level career in chemistry, food chemistry, biotechnology or the pharmaceutical industry as well as for entry to graduate school in biochemistry or molecular biology or any of a number of professional schools, i.e. medical school, dental school, pharmacy school or veterinary school.
