About Chemistry

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 disciplines in our university. 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, medicine or veterinary science. At the undergraduate level, the department offers the B.S. Degree in Chemistry certified by the American Chemical Society. On 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.

The Chemistry Department has developed partnerships with a number of companies, research laboratories and other graduate institutions. Scholarships, stipends and fellowships are available to students who qualify. Inquiries for student financial support should be made to the department chair. Our students, graduate and undergraduate, have opportunities to pursue research internships throughout the nation and/or conduct research with faculty in our department. The career opportunities for our students are plentiful and the salaries are excellent. The administration, faculty and staff are dedicated to providing excellent instruction, research and service to our students.

Immediate future plans for our department include offering the Ph.D. Degree in Chemistry and the establishment of a Center for Biotechnology and Materials Science. The department has an enrollment of one-hundred twenty undergraduate and twenty three graduate students. We invite alumni, friends, governmental agencies, and other institutions, industrial and business companies, and students to visit our web site and communicate with us as often as you desire.
