Chemistry
Department

The department offers lecture and laboratory experiences in all major areas of chemistry—general, organic, physical, inorganic, biochemical, analytical—and in many special topics of chemistry, such as structural, polymer, protein, organometallic, computational, and environmental. The department offers a degree accredited by the American Chemical Society. Independent research in chemistry is encouraged at all levels to provide students with the opportunity to work directly with a faculty member and to gain experience using sophisticated instrumentation, such as a Bruker Avance 300-MHz NMR, Agilent quadrupole time-of-flight (Q-TOF) LC-MS, and a Bruker APEX-DUO dual source (Mo and Cu) CCD X-ray diffractometer, as well as ICP/AE, GC/MS, FTIR, Raman, UV/Vis, XRF, circular dichroism and fluorescence spectroscopy. Options include the major, an interdepartmental major (biochemistry), and a correlate sequence. A senior thesis based on a research project is required.
