Chemistry Department

As a chemistry student, you’ll enjoy small classes (including introductory chemistry), significant original research experiences in our modern laboratories, wide ranging student-faculty collaboration, varying teaching methods that serve diverse learning styles, and opportunities to teach others through our mentor program. You’ll also have the flexibility to design a major that suits your interests including, for example, completing an ACS certified program. Our majors go onto graduate programs in a variety of disciplines and international fellowships.
