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.

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.
