Nazareth College


At the request of Bishop Hickey of Rochester, five Sisters of St. Joseph — with newly-minted Ph.D.’s that included graduate study at Oxford University and the Sorbonne — founded Nazareth College in 1924. Committed to academic excellence, these pioneering women inspired the first class of 25 young women to stretch to their potential. 


The coeducational, religiously independent, classic campus in a charming suburb of Rochester, N.Y., challenges and supports 2,300 undergrads and 700 graduate students. Nazareth is recognized nationally for its Fulbright global student scholars and commitment to civic engagement. 


Undergraduate research is an exciting opportunity for chemistry students to work with faculty and experience the process of discovery. The faculty have developed a culture of scholarship in which students learn how to use research to strengthen their understanding of scientific concepts. Undergraduate research is actively encouraged throughout the students' curriculum to invigorate learning.


Career Coaching is part of the Center for Life’s Work at Nazareth.
