Department of Chemistry

Welcome

The Department of Chemistry deals with the core knowledge essential to much of the scientific experimentation that influences our daily lives. From atomic theories to the basic chemical structures, the prospective chemist studies that material which forms a basis for important work in engineering, pharmacy, medicine, medical technology, dentistry, and research chemistry. The Chemistry department is approved to offer degrees certified by the American Chemcial Society (ACS); students completing the proper ACS curriculum will thus be certified by the society and department. The Department also assists in the preparation of prospective science teachers. These students, as well as those studying chemistry as part of their general education, work in modern facilities fully equipped for investigating contemporary chemistry topics.
