The Chemistry and Physics Department provides an engaged learning community between students and faculty through small class sizes, undergraduate research with faculty and personal advisors. This environment is enhanced by state-of-the-art equipment that is used in many professional and research settings not normally available in the undergraduate setting. The availability of this instrumentation provides hands-on experience for the students. Also analysis of the data acquired from the instrumentation utilizes and sharpens critical thinking skills vital to any chemistry or physics profession.

The department offers four undergraduate programs which lead to a Bachelor of Science Degree in either Biochemistry or Forensic Chemistry or Chemistry or Physics. These degrees are designed for those students who wish to pursue graduate studies in biochemistry or biomedical sciences or forensics or chemistry or physics or related fields, attend professional schools or work as laboratory chemists or physicist. A Bachelor of Science Degree in Chemistry Education is offered to those students who plan to become high school chemistry teachers. A Master’s Degree in General Science Education in Chemistry is also offered. Read the Handbook
