A convergence of the chemical and biological sciences encompasses one of the most rapidly expanding and developing areas in science today.
Chemistry is at the center of modern technology and our department is a strong and active link to advanced technical development in key industries. We provide essential training for careers in biotechnology and the medical and pharmaceutical industries with hands on experience in molecular biology, forensics or genetic engineering.
We also offer M.S. and Ph.D. programs with concentrations in analytical, biochemical, physical (theoretical), organic, and inorganic chemistry as well as environmental, colloid and surface chemistry. The rigorous curriculum includes courses in analytical, organic and physical chemistry as well as cell biology, genetics and molecular biology concluding with a two-semester capstone course in biochemistry, supplemented by intensive labs in molecular biology and biotechnology.
