Chemistry from Rhodes College views modern chemistry as a broadly diverse science, with roots in physics and mathematics, and applications in biology, geology, neuroscience, medicine, and industry.


The philosophy of the Chemistry Department at Rhodes College rests on two beliefs. First, Chemistry, as all science, is part of the liberal arts, and so the study of chemistry benefits from concurrent study of arts and humanities as well as athletics and service. Second, Chemistry is truly a central science, and the most exciting work in chemistry is done when it is applied to biology, medicine, neuroscience, materials, archaeology, and other fields. Thus in our department you will find faculty that are proficient not only in chemistry, but also in a variety of applied fields.     

In recent years, graduates of our department have typically followed one of three paths: graduate studies in a Health Profession, including medical school, pharmacy school, dental school, nursing school, or veterinary school; graduate studies in Chemistry; or immediate employment in either Chemical industry or Science education.


Each member of the Department has an on-going research program, thus research opportunities for students are available in a wide variety of areas. Students at Rhodes College work on computer modeling of drug-protein interactions, synthesis of novel anti-bacterial molecules, analysis of pigments used in cave paintings, studies of the cell walls of fungi, and more. Visit the links below for an in-depth description of each faculty member′s research program.
