Department of Chemistry
Chemistry is truly the central science.
Within the broad field of chemistry, you'll find ways to apply math, physics, engineering, biology, and technology. Chemistry is a discipline that explains, at the most fundamental level, the true composition of the world around us, why things change, and how changes occur. Since the days of Aristotle, mankind has been attempting to master these concepts, and through chemistry, we've had amazing discoveries and insights into a world that's hidden to our naked eye.
In our curriculum, we focus on both the conceptual understanding of matter and its changes as well as the quantitative aspects of predicting and measuring these properties. We offer programs in traditional chemistry, pre-medical, and pre-pharmacy studies. We also offer dual degree programs with chemical engineering and biology. Our program provides flexibility and selection to meet individual student needs and aspirations.
We are proud to be an American Chemical Society (ACS) certified department. This certification ensures that you will receive a fundamental and professionally recognized chemical education, which is an excellent preparation for a plethora of careers, as well as for graduate or professional schools. Our graduates have successfully completed rigorous course requirements as well as earned vital research experience.
