Our faculty understands that knowledge in the chemical sciences is created through experimentation. Our Department of Chemistry program strongly emphasizes laboratory experience and research.
Bachelor's Degree in Chemistry
Students earning their chemistry degree can choose to add a concentration in biochemistry, business or adolescence education. Students study in small classes, and work directly with faculty to gain hands-on laboratory experience. The laboratory facilities are equipped with instrumentation used in industrial and medical laboratories. Students apply their laboratory skills to original research in organic chemistry, biochemistry and physical chemistry, leading to a senior thesis and presentation.
