Department Chair: M. Scott Goodman
The Chemistry Department at Buffalo State is dedicated to its goal of preparing students for careers in chemistry, forensic chemistry and secondary education, or for continuing education at the graduate school level. The department prides itself on the research and scholarship accomplishments of its faculty members and on the balance this brings to both its graduate and undergraduate programs.
The Chemistry Department consists of 10 full-time faculty members and five adjunct faculty, and is located on the top floor of the Science Building at Buffalo State. The department houses the necessary equipment to support a wide variety of research interests, as well as mechanical and woodworking shops and electronic repair facilities.
The interests of the department cover a wide range of topics within the traditional fields of analytical, biochemical, inorganic, organic, physical chemistry and chemical education. Many of the ongoing projects are collaborative involving faculty of other departments, universities and laboratories.
