Chemistry Department

The Chemistry Department provides an exceptionally rich learning environment for the study of this foundational science. Faculty members, who are generous with their time and knowledge, teach all courses in the department and plan and facilitate all research.

The department focuses on providing students with individual attention, promoted through small lecture and lab classes taught by professors committed to one-on-one and small-group interactions.
