About Us

If you love science, but are unsure of a specific career path, let the Chemistry and Biochemistry Department introduce you to a liberal arts curriculum that will prepare you as a scientist in the broadest sense. Our students learn to be scientific problem-solvers and thinkers first. They work closely with talented faculty to learn, question and experience science, which helps them to move on to nearly any type of career in healthcare, medicine, science or technology. Recent graduates have gone on to top graduate programs in chemistry, biochemistry, and pharmacy. Others use their knowledge and scientific training for work in education, medical/health fields, and industrial settings. One of the strengths of this program is the undergraduate chemistry research opportunity. Our students have access to state-of-the-art laboratory equipment and work directly with the faculty. Chemistry and biochemistry majors regularly present their research results at regional and national conferences in chemistry, which is important professional experience for those looking to excel in graduate school or in the field.
