The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry is dedicated to providing a high education in the disciplines of chemistry and biochemistry in an environment that encourages hands-on research participation by students. The Department offers programs leading to a Bachelors of Science degrees (B.S.) in Chemistry and in Biochemistry and a Masters of Science (M.S.) degree with thesis, Biochemistry and comprehensive examination options.

A major strength of the department is the commitment of the full-time faculty to research involving undergraduate and graduate students. This research commitment is an integral part of our teaching. Nearly 100 students are currently participating in independent research programs under the direction of chemistry and biochemistry faculty. A research project is required in all options in the MS Chemistry program, and at the undergraduate level can be used for elective credit.
