New Rochelle, NY- Iona College's undergraduate chemistry program has recently been approved by the Committee on Professional Training of the American Chemical Society (ACS). This accomplishment allows professors and students alike the opportunity to advance as professionals in all fields of chemistry and sciences that involve chemistry. Approval means that the program offered by the Iona College Department of Chemistry meets guidelines established by the ACS for a coherent chemistry curriculum that is delivered by an accomplished and professional faculty via a modern and well-maintained academic infrastructure.
The ACS has authorized the Chair of the Department to certify graduating Iona College students who complete a B.S. degree meeting these guidelines. Graduates who attain a certified degree will have been provided an excellent foundation for a career in the molecular sciences. ACS-approved programs offer a broad-based and rigorous chemistry education that provides students intellectual, experimental, and communication skills to become effective scientific professionals. The recent Chair of the Chemistry Department, Terrence Gavin, is thrilled about the advances and believes "The ACS accredited degree is an important option for our students- This extramural certification is a clear pathway to distinction for our graduates."
Over the years Iona College has had some significant advances making it a more accredited, recognized institution and approval by ACS is certainly one of them. For more information on ACS, please visit the website at www.acs.org.
