Chemistry has been called the Central Science because the behaviors of atoms and molecules, whether they are biomolecules or materials, govern our natural world. As a student in our introductory courses you will study in classes using the latest methods that support your learning. In the teaching laboratories you will learn modern techniques and how chemists actually construct scientific knowledge. In the advanced courses you will gain an in-depth knowledge of the various sub-disciplines of chemistry – organic, inorganic, analytical, biochemistry or physical chemistry.

And Chemistry is a laboratory science. You will conduct experiments using modern equipment and will learn how to design your own experiments. All majors are encouraged to work with faculty in their research laboratories and have an in-depth experience conducting research at the forefront of science. Our faculty have laboratories in biochemistry and in drug design, in radiochemistry and material science. Look at the faculty interests and see if there is something you might want to pursue.
