Welcome to the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry

The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry offers four rigorous, high quality degree programs (B.A. Chemistry, B.S. Chemistry, B.S. Biochemistry and M.S. Chemistry) that prepare students for careers in research, industry and education, as well as preparing students for admission to Ph.D., medical, pharmacy, dentistry and osteopathic medicine programs. Our programs provide opportunities to gain hands-on experience with modern instrumentation, to conduct research under the guidance of faculty mentors, to take laboratory classes in private-sector facilities, participate in the Chemistry Honors program, and contribute beyond the classroom to promote science in local schools and our community.
