Department of

Chemistry and Physics

The primary goal of the Department of Chemistry and Physics is to uphold a commitment to excellence in undergraduate education and to facilitate student success in these challenging disciplines.  Along with the relevant Biology courses, Chemistry and Physics provide an excellent preparation for professional health related fields such as graduate programs, medicine, dentistry, and pharmacy.  While many students pursue these career goals, others enter the workforce directly after graduation.  Still other students enter graduate school to become research scientists.


Our 32nd Annual 2018 Summer Undergraduate Research Program Final Talks!

Another successful summer culminates with chemistry and physics research students presenting their results! Their 10-week laboratory experience showed that they honed in on their analytical and critical thinking skills. They are now preparing their work to present at National and/or Regional meetings to share and discuss their findings with other scientists.
