Department of Chemistry and Physics


Welcome to the Department of Chemistry and Physics. The Department offers a both a major and minor in Chemistry and a minor in Physics.

The department of chemistry and physics is also proud to announce that a new B.S. in Biochemistry program will begin August 2014. The biochemistry degree is a rigorous science degree requiring requisite backgrounds and mathematics and science. It is a B.S. level program which will prepare students for direct employment in biomedical, environmental, and defense areas; or, any fields that utilize B.S. level scientists and for entry into biochemistry graduate schools.

We offer many courses that complement other majors such as Biology, Business, Engineering and Education. Our majors enjoy very close contact with their professors, working with them to explore areas of common interest, participating in student research projects in Chemistry, and then taking the next step in their career with a solid foundation.

Our distinguished faculty members are eager to talk to you about our programs and courses. Please browse through our website, explore, dream, and give us a call.
