The Chemistry Department is a dynamic, energetic and growing organization that focuses on giving students the best possible education in the chemical sciences. We are housed in the Science Building, a state-of-the-art facility with labs offering the latest instrumentation and technology. We offer both undergraduate and graduate degrees and are proud of our low student to faculty teaching ratios. The department has fourteen fulltime faculty and a support staff of seven. Our faculty members have diverse research interests - ranging from the study of trace metals over remote areas of the open ocean to bio activation and cytotoxic mechanisms of xenobiotics including antineoplastic agents, environmental contaminants, natural products and photosensitizers to theoretical investigation of the chemical vapor deposition processes of various inorganic materials such as diamond, graphite, silicon crystals, and silicon carbide . Student research opportunities abound for undergraduates as well as graduate students. Welcome to our website!
Chemistry Club has been hard at work making science themed crafts and snacks for Ware Fair, so we hope you will stop by the SURC and look for us! We will be downstairs this year in room 137 on Thursday and Friday (10:00a – 7:00p) and Saturday (10:00a – 3:00p).
