The core identity of SUNY Cortland’s Chemistry Department is strong research experience for engaged students.
No matter their major – biochemistry, chemistry or adolescence education – students in the Chemistry Department are invited and encouraged to join faculty members on research in their labs because this work makes them part of the scientific community.
SUNY Cortland offers many outlets for student research, from a summer fellowship program that provides $4,000 awards, an annual campus conference each spring and a fall symposium that focuses exclusively on the sciences, which is shown below.
