The department offers courses in the five major areas of chemistry: analytical, biochemistry, inorganic, organic, and physical. The department offers a degree approved by the Committee on Professional Training of the American Chemical Society. There is also a biochemistry track in the chemistry major and a chemistry track in the Environmental Science Program. Students completing the undergraduate degree program are well-prepared to begin a career or advanced study in chemistry or related disciplines. In addition to serving chemistry majors, the department offers courses for students in premedicine, predentistry, biology, dietetics, earth sciences, physics, education, and cooperative engineering programs. Introductory courses also present the principles and applications of chemistry to non-science majors.
