The Mission of the Department of Chemistry is to provide students with a strong background in the fundamental concepts, theories, and problem-solving methodologies to prepare students for pursuing advanced degrees and careers in a variety of professional and technical settings.
Chemistry is the central science that permeates all science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) disciplines. Our chemistry faculty has developed a program to meet the needs of undergraduate students who desire to pursue research or teaching careers, graduate studies in chemistry or studies towards careers in dentistry or medicine. At the undergraduate level, we offer programs that are approved by the American Chemical Society (ACS).
At the graduate level, students can pursue the M.S. Degree in Chemistry with research thesis options in a variety of areas. You are encouraged to review the research interests of our faculty on this web site and contact them directly to ascertain potential thesis research projects that can be offered in our department.
