The Department of Chemistry offers a sequence of courses to provide a solid background for employment as a professional chemist or for graduate training in the various branches of chemistry. Courses are organized so that certain parts of the sequence can provide a foundation of chemical knowledge for pre-professional students or for majors in departments requiring chemistry. We are among the institutions approved by the American Chemical Society for undergraduate education in Chemistry.
