Degrees offered by the Department of Chemistry prepare students for advanced studies in chemistry and related disciplines such as medicine, pharmacy, or veterinary science, and careers as chemists in government, industry, and teaching. Our curricula reflect the standards set by the American Chemical Society (ACS), which are accepted by virtually all chemistry departments at competitive colleges and universities across the country.
Because the department is small, Chemistry majors receive a good deal of individual attention from faculty and have laboratory experiences not usually available in undergraduate courses. In addition, majors perform research, an experience which develops independent and creative thinking as part of their studies. Take a peek at our brochure for additional information regarding our Chemistry program.
Our Chemistry First day was a big success! On January 20th, we had 34 students and 9 local science teachers participate in lab tours, hands on lab experiements and disuccsions with facutly and current research students. Check out this article summarizing the event from students in Polk County.
