The accredited study program is Chemistry Education Study Program, which was previously accredited A.

Thus the results of research from UNY lecturers are increasingly recognized for their quality. The Chancellor also provides incentives for articles entering international journals and accredited journals.
From the results of the research, there have been many lecturer research results that are used as teaching materials so as to increase students' insight into the latest research that continues to grow.
