Main Content

Chemistry Department

Chemistry is by its nature interdisciplinary, drawing on both mathematics and physics to understand basic principles and helping to inform the understanding of structure and reactivity in biological systems. As such, in addition to chemistry, students demonstrate competency in calculus, physics, and biochemistry.

Forensic science seeks to use science to answer legal questions. Drawing on the strengths of the college's chemistry, computer science, and criminal justice programs, the forensic science major is based around core classes in science and criminal justice as well as courses in computer forensics, statistics, image processing, and other electives.

The department engages students in a variety of learning experiences that integrate the teaching and research laboratories with the classroom.

Laboratories are integral to our curriculum, in both a class context and a research context. Hands-on learning is emphasized in most courses and students use modern instrumentation in all laboratory classes. Our classes and labs sections are small, enabling closer contact between the faculty member and our students.

Congratulations to our Chemistry and Forensic Science 2015 graduates!
Class of 2015
