About Us


The Department of Chemistry features strong programs in both undergraduate and graduate education. We offer BS degrees accredited by the American Chemical Society (ACS) as well as BA degrees. Undergraduate chemistry majors can choose from a traditional chemistry degree or opt for a Chemistry degree with a biochemistry emphasis. Many undergraduate chemistry majors participate in the student affiliate of the American Chemical Society. Numerous opportunities for undergraduate research also exist and students are encouraged to participate in faculty directed research projects.

We also offer programs leading to MS and PhD degrees with specialization in Analytical, Biological, Inorganic, Organic, and Physical chemistry.
