Welcome
 
Experience the world of chemistry with an expert faculty covering analytical, biochemistry, inorganic, organic, physical, and several interdisciplinary fields. Each chemistry major receives individual attention, guidance, and direction in his or her pursuit of excellence in chemistry. Undergraduate projects are encouraged. Modern instruments and an enthusiastic faculty provide for a challenging educational environment.
 
At the completion of four years of study, a BS degree in chemistry is awarded. Students may pursue an American Chemical Society certified degree, an honors degree, and/or a chemistry degree with an interdisciplinary minor. Graduation opens opportunities for entrance into graduate or medical school, and medically related fields as well as entrance into industrial and government sector careers.
 
Chemistry is a fundamental science. Our department emphasizes individual student attention. Small class size in upper level major courses means greater individual attention. You get direct hands-on contact and experience with modern instrumentation. As an ACS certified department, students receive a fundamental and professionally recognized chemical education, an excellent preparation for numerous occupations as well as for graduate or professional schools.
 
We offer curriculums in traditional chemistry and in pre-medical studies. Our program provides flexibility and selection to meet individual student needs and aspirations. Students may opt to pursue a research project in experimental or computer-based computational endeavors. Undergraduate research can lead to publication of results in a professional journal.
