Program Description

An ACS-approved program in Chemistry means that NCCU is committed to providing you with a broadly based and intellectually challenging experience in chemistry. It means that the department has been carefully evaluated with respect to its breadth and depth, the qualifications of the chemistry faculty, the adequacy of the physical plant, condition of instrumentation, access to the current chemical literature, and opportunities for a meaningful research experience. An academic institution whose chemistry department meets the guidelines for ACS approval is placed on a nationally recognized list of approved chemistry programs. Clearly, the objective of the ACS approval/certification process is to encourage institutions to develop and maintain a high quality program of instruction in chemistry. Furthermore, identifying and participating in an approved program will afford you some measure of assurance that you are being given high quality instruction.
