ACS ccreditation

The American Chemical Society (ACS) is one of the largest scientific societies and the home for chemistry professionals. As an ACS-approved program, we develop and maintain a high-quality program. No matter what career you want, you’ll benefit from building a strong background in a wide breadth of concepts within chemistry, including safe laboratory practices, oral and written communication skills, familiarity with the chemical literature, and experience with working both independently and as part of a team. ACS programs also require least 400 hours of hands-on laboratory experiences beyond general chemistry.
