Why Chemistry and Biochemistry At USK?

The University of Saint Katherine’s Chemistry & Biochemistry concentration is designed to prepare students for graduate work leading to careers in teaching and research at colleges and universities, in research for government and industry, in the operation and control of manufacturing processes, and in management and development positions in the chemical industry. Faculty members working with small classes sizes help students develop the creativity and critical thinking skills to achieve excellence in inquiry, discovery, application, and service. The experience culminates in writing a thesis focusing on an area of research interest under the guidance of the student’s individual faculty thesis adviser.

Delia earned multiple academic honors while attaining her Bachelor of Science degree with a concentration in Chemistry & Biochemistry. She has since earned a Master of Public Health and is working towards a PharmD at Touro University College of Pharmacy in Vallejo, California. “If it were not for my mentors and research experience at USK, this would not have been possible!” remarked Jimenez in a 2020 interview. She continues to inspire us here at USK by her care for those in challenging circumstances, organizing community health fairs and assisting refugees while pursuing her studies.
