Mission The mission of the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry is to educate students in the theory and ethical practice of chemistry within the framework of the scientific method, and to provide students with a context for appreciating the history of chemistry and its applications within society.
About the DepartmentThe Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry offers instruction in chemistry at multiple levels ranging from non-major courses in the university's Liberal Studies Program to advanced special topics in our own graduate programs. In addition, we provide opportunities for our students to contribute original ideas and findings to the larger scientific community through faculty-mentored, laboratory-based research.
