A personalized learning laboratory.

Dynamic classes, laboratory research, and multiple means of interacting with faculty allow you to develop a personalized major that fits your individual learning style. As a chemistry major you’ll gain hands-on experience with modern instrumentation as you couple creative thought with experimentation. All of this will prepare you for a career in chemical research, education, the medical or engineering professions, or to pursue graduate work in chemistry, biochemistry, pharmacology, environmental science, geology, materials science, or many other areas of study.
