Brooklyn campus' chemistry graduate program has stayed competitive
and strong since its inception. Our success has been due
primarily to the quality of the education recieved by
our Master's candidates coupled with the attention given to"hands-on"
research. Our faculty recognizes that a solid
research experienceis a must in today's competitive technological
market.This approach to education is validated by the success
of our students who are highly sought after by companies such
as Wyeth Ayerst, DuPont, Merck, and Pfizer.
While conducting their
research, all students are FULLY supported. Eligible
students will recieve:
- FULL tuition remission
Teaching Assistantships worth over $8,000/yr.
"The opportunity to be a teaching
assistant strengthened my foundation in chemistry and gave me
valuable leadership experience. These are assets that
I am sure will come in handy in the job market"

"The modern labs and helpful teaching
assistant made the laboratory portion of my chemistry class
the best part of the course!"

"I'm glad I chose LIU as my graduate
school. The generous financial programs meant that I
didn't have to worry about money or loans. Plus, I was
able to work side by side with my advisor, something I would
have never been able to do any place else!"

In addition to conducting
cutting-edge research, our faculty have been awarded many
grants in the last several years. These grants
run the gamut from research and instrument grants to grants
to finance the education of under-represented minorites
in science (RISE, BRIDGE).
One such grant available to chemistry master's
degree candidates is RISE. RISE, Research Initiative
for Scientific Enhancement, is funded by the National Institute
of Health (NIH) and is meant to support outstanding minority
students who wish to pursue a career in biomedical research.
If you'd like to know more about the RISE, please contact
Professor Edward Donahue.
to the Doctorate:
This program is also funded by the NIH and is
designed for students who wish to pursue a Ph.D. in biomedical
science. Students work in close collaboration with the
graduate faculty of the Albert Einstein College of Medicine
(AECOM) of Yeshiva University. Upon completion of the
master's degree at LIU, students are accepted into AECOM to
pursue their doctorate. If you'd like to know more about
the RISE, please contact
- Full tuition remission
- A stipend of $15,000/yr
One-on-one research and academic training under
the guidance of an expert faculty member.
we'd like to let remind you some major advantages LIU can offer
you that other schools can not:
- Small class sizes
(10-15 students maximum)
- "Hands on" research
training with an expert faculty mentor whose one-on-one
advice will give you the edge companies and graduate schools
are looking for!
Unlimited access to our
cutting-edge instrumenation, which rivals any other facility
in the New York City area!
"The friendly informal atmosphere
at LIU made it easy to approach any professor with research
questions, even if the professor wasn't my advisor!"
