The chemistry program is approved by the Committee on Professional Training of the American Chemical Society. This approval means that the program has the faculty, curriculum and instrumentation necessary to provide a quality education for undergraduate students.
The chemistry program offers courses in the basic areas of inorganic, organic, analytical, physical, and biochemistry, which are supplemented by special opportunities such as industrial internships, studies in laboratory safety and health, and independent research. Modern scientific instrumentation is available and incorporated into all courses of the curriculum. Recognizing the individuality of students and that chemistry can be a strong preparation for a variety of careers, the program offers three emphases. Students are encouraged to consult with chemistry faculty about the various emphases and opportunities associated with each.
