We offer classes in the core-curriculum of majors in chemistry, biochemistry, pre-pharmacy, pre-dentistry, pre-medicine, biology, physics, physical therapy and engineering. In addition, we encourage you to take advantage of the chance to work one-on-one with our faculty on research projects.
The Department of Chemistry is composed of 12 faculty members, adjunct/visiting faculty, 24 graduate students and one administrative assistant. Our faculty members are research-active scholars who take the task of teaching very seriously. Many courses offered by the department include laboratory components taught by& graduate students (MS or PhD candidates).
