Chemistry is central to the development of new medicines and materials, the understanding of biological processes on a molecular level and many important global issues of today, including the environment and energy.

Our curriculum is designed to allow chemistry majors to learn fundamental chemical concepts and laboratory skills and to have ample opportunity to engage in original research with guidance from a faculty mentor.
