Department Head, Alvan Hengge

As a student in this Department, you will have as your instructors some of the most talented and dedicated teachers in the nation. Your courses will be taught by professors who are at the top of their fields, yet are very much interested in the development of each and every student.

We offer several courses of study, each designed for students with specific interests, such as biochemistry or medical professions. For example, you could choose to work toward a BS degree in either chemistry or biochemistry. Chemistry majors can elect emphases in a number of different areas including professional or environmental chemistry, life science, or chemical education.

Many of our students engage in research during their time here, which puts them in touch with some of the exciting and modern developments in chemistry, and enables them to do work on some of the most sophisticated equipment in the world. We are housed in a beautiful new chemistry building that was just completed, and encompasses some of the most functional and up-to-date labs and lecture rooms in the nation. Our graduates have found enjoyable and profitable careers upon receiving their degrees.

In conclusion, I would urge you to learn more about this Department, who we are, what we do, and what you will learn here. Please feel free to contact me directly.
