The Chemistry (CHEM) program offerings are designed for students who want to become chemists, for those who would like to use chemistry to understand the behavior of living systems, and for those who wish to apply chemistry to problems in physics, geology, environmental studies or marine science. It is also an appropriate degree program for students pursuing careers in engineering, medicine, dentistry, veterinary medicine or science teaching at the secondary level. The program seeks to provide students an opportunity to acquire a sound foundation in chemistry, and to see its broader applications.

Lectures and laboratory experiments, seminars and independent study in the program are tailored to the background and goals of the individual student as much as possible. As the student progresses, emphasis shifts from relatively structured classroom and laboratory experiences to activities which require increasing independence and initiative on the student’s part. Undergraduate research is an integral part of the typical experience in the laboratory for juniors and seniors.
