About

We are a teaching- and research-oriented department offering degrees in Chemistry (B.S., M.S., Ph.D.), and Chemical Physics (Ph.D., jointly with the Physics Department), including bachelor’s degree emphases certified by the American Chemical Society (the Professional Emphasis and the Environmental Emphasis). As a relatively small department, we are able to provide close interactions among students and faculty. Many of our undergraduates and all of our graduate students participate in state-of-the-art chemistry research, working with a faculty mentor. Our graduates go on to employment in academia, industry, and government; many of our Bachelor’s degree graduates are admitted to high-ranked graduate chemistry programs, medical, or dental schools.
