The Department of Chemistry offers undergraduate major and minor programs in chemistry along with graduate training (M.S. and Ph.D.) in a modern facility with state-of-the-art instrumentation. The undergraduate course of study for chemistry, certified by the American Chemical Society, prepares students for careers as chemists in pharmaceutical, chemical, and consumer products industries, and for advanced training in top-ranked Ph.D. programs. Additionally, many chemistry graduates continue their education in medical, dental, or pharmacy schools.
At the graduate level, the faculty mentor students in both part-time and full-time programs. Graduates find positions in academic or industrial settings, often spending their careers in cutting-edge scientific research.
