Discovery begins here! Chemists study the atomic structure of physical matter and interpret how it changes. In our department, students have access to research, competitive internships and career training opportunities that will prepare them for the demands of current and future society. Studying chemistry requires a strong interest in inquiry. Our state-of-the-art instrumentation encourages curiosity while our highly enthusiastic faculty make our classrooms a true gateway to discovery.
