We are a teaching- and research-oriented department offering degrees in Chemistry (B.S., M.S., Ph.D.), Environmental Chemistry (B.S.), and Chemical Physics (Ph.D., jointly with the Physics Department), including bachelor's degree programs certified by the American Chemical Society.
The highly interactive program offers a wide range of study options dealing with contemporary biophysics, cancer, cell biology, chemical biology, immunology, insect biochemistry, microbiology, pharmacology and plant biology.
Chemical physics provides an interdisciplinary curriculum for those students whose primary research interests are in atomic and molecular physics and physical chemistry.
Chemistry majors complete courses providing a solid background in the physical sciences and mathematics, together with a sequence of courses in general, organic, inorganic, analytical, and physical chemistry.
