The Department of Chemistry's mission is to provide a program of study that delivers the core elements of chemistry. It provides a chemical education that prepares students for professional work in chemistry, entrance into graduate school programs, teaching positions, and scientific or laboratory-based employment. The department believes that optimal learning is achieved when the study of essential content is reinforced through laboratory experience. Our programs offer opportunities to actively participate in chemical research that includes the use of modern chemical instrumentation and technology. Effective communication of chemical information is promoted, as is critical thinking and the development of problem-solving skills.
