Rutgers University offers both undergraduate and graduate classes in organic chemistry. The undergraduate program, however, does not provide an organic chemistry emphasis. Undergraduate students can specialize under one of five chemistry strains, two of which require more organic chemistry courses than the other strains.
The general American Chemical Society (ACS) and chemical biology strains require advanced organic chemistry courses in addition to required research projects.
Students attending Rutgers for a graduate degree (M.S. or Ph.D.) can specialize in organic chemistry. These programs require students to complete seminars, labs and a variety of research projects that culminate in a thesis or dissertation.
