About

The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry seeks to develop progressive skills in building qualitative and quantitative interpretation of chemical phenomena, in experimental analysis and design, and in written and oral communication of scientific ideas. Graduates of this program, grounded in a well developed molecular world view, are expected to explain the behavior of chemical and biological systems on the basis of physical models. The department is also deeply committed to sustaining a vigorous and diverse range of collaborative student-faculty research. A community of mutual support among students, faculty, and staff is a vital element in achieving our goals.
