Due to the potential hazards some chemicals may present, safety is an essential element of all Chemistry laboratory classes, including independent research. All students must adhere to the Department of Chemistry Laboratory Safety Policies (). Failure to adhere to the Safety Policies may constitute grounds for withdrawal from a course and/or dismissal from the program.
Three BA programs are available: One without a concentration (general) and two with concentrations (Biochemistry or Forensic Chemistry). The common requirements of the three programs are shown below under "Core Requirements."

Students in our program learn both fundamental theory and practical application in all areas of chemistry (inorganic, analytical, organic, physical, biochemical) and they gain substantial experience operating highly sophisticated instrumentation. This prepares students for a wide variety of careers. Examples include: environmental chemistry, toxicology, materials science, government and industry laboratories, biotechnology, agricultural technology, high school science teaching, medicine, dentistry, optometry and other related health sciences, pharmacy and pharmacology, patent law, computational chemistry, forensic analysis, sales representative for instrument, chemical and pharmaceutical companies, art restoration and more.
Chemistry – Just another PVAMU Sites site
Chemistry students get frequent one-on-one training and advisement through informal interactions with our faculty in the research labs. Each of our faculty, on average, mentor two or three graduate students every year. The faculty gets to know the students, including their goals and aspirations, on a personal level.
Most of our faculty either presently hold or have recently held research grants funded by the National Science Foundation, National Cancer Institute as well agencies within the National Institutes of Health, Research Corporation, Department of Defense, Department of Energy, NASA, EPA, and/or research contracts from pharmaceutical companies or biotech industries. All of these research grants and contracts involve students as “doers and thinkers” in novel, cutting edge research. Present projects involve development of new anti-cancer agents; development of new vaccines; development of new drug delivery systems; forensic analysis and toxicological studies of explosive residues; novel, new nanotechnology-encapsulation delivery systems; development of new food preservation methods; green chemistry methodologies; environmental impact of agricultural chemicals in drinking water; examination of herbal materials; the development of new methods of instrumental analysis; and many more projects.
Welcome to our Chemistry Department
The Department of Chemistry currently consists of 11 faculty holding doctoral degrees from distinguished universities around the world. All faculty are dedicated educators, skilled in fostering active student participation. They are also active researchers and have, to their credit, many research publications and presentations in the areas of their specialty. Graduate students in Chemistry will have an opportunity to work with faculty on research projects involving analytical chemistry, biochemistry, environmental chemistry, food chemistry, forensic chemistry, green chemistry, inorganic chemistry, material science, nanotechnology, organic chemistry, medicinal chemistry, physical chemistry, polymer chemistry, or toxicological chemistry.
