welcome to the department of chemistry
the department of chemistry offers a bachelor of arts in chemistry and an american chemical society accredited bachelor of science in chemistry. we also offer a bachelor of science in biochemistry and a bachelor of science in medicinal-pharmaceutical chemistry. our graduate programs include a master of science in chemistry with a thesis or non-thesis option and, starting in the 2016-17 academic year we offer the 5-year bachelors + masters program (bpm).
all of our b.s. chemistry and biochemistry majors are encouraged to participate in an undergraduate research project under the guidance of a faculty research mentor (b.s. medicinal-pharmaceutical chemistry and b.a. chemistry students are encouraged to participate as well). students may choose to pursue projects in all major chemistry sub-disciplines (analytical, inorganic, medicinal, organic, physical and biochemistry).
