Our department of chemistry offers an outstanding education through high quality instruction in the classroom and laboratory, excellent research opportunities and close student-faculty interactions.

In any of the chemistry majors, you will have small classes, lots of one-on-one with your professors and research opportunities that at many institutions would be limited to graduate students.

Faculty areas of expertise include:

  • Computational chemistry
  • Bioluminescence
  • Gas-phase reaction kinetics mechanisms
  • Biosynthesis of natural products
  • Enzymology
  • Antibiotic resistance
  • Inorganic materials chemistry
  • Organic synthesis of natural products
  • Molecular spectroscopy
  • Atmospheric chemistry
