What You'll Study

The mission of the undergraduate program in Chemistry is to provide students with the fundamental concepts of the molecular sciences through a program of coursework and laboratory experiences. Students acquire in-depth knowledge of the principles of chemistry, the methodologies necessary to solve complex problems, and the ability to articulate their ideas effectively to the scientific community. The Chemistry program has a long-standing tradition of encouraging undergraduate majors to become involved in research during the academic year and through a ten-week summer research program. The major is designed to provide students with excellent preparation for further study in graduate or professional schools as well as careers in chemistry.
