Chemistry occupies a unique position within the modern sciences. Ultimately, most of the phenomena in the biological, geological, physical, environmental and medical sciences can be expressed in terms of the chemical and physical behavior of atoms and molecules. Because of chemistry's key role, majors in chemistry and biochemistry are well prepared to pursue careers in a wide variety of disciplines.

The department offers programs leading to the Bachelor of Science and the Bachelor of Arts. These programs prepare students for careers in chemistry, biochemistry, medicine, forensic science, environmental science and education. The department's professional BS option is approved by the American Chemical Society. BS degrees are recommended for students planning professional careers in chemistry or related areas, while BA degrees are recommended for students with other career goals.

Students majoring in chemistry have the opportunity to engage in research projects with the department's faculty and to gain experience with computational chemistry; modern instrumental techniques including gas and liquid chromatography; ultra-violet, visible, infra-red, Raman, fluorescence and atomic absorption spectrophotometry; nuclear magnetic resonance; and x-ray diffraction. Upon graduation, our students are knowledgeable, experienced and independent laboratory workers.

General Admissions Requirements:

Students considering a major in Chemistry and Biochemistry should complete a high school chemistry course and mathematics courses through precalculus.

Students transfering from other institutions are urged to consult with the department chair to plan their Eastern program of study.

Chemistry courses must be taken in proper sequence and with certain prerequisites satisfied.  To graduate withint four years, chemistry majors must take CHEM 151, CHEM 152, and CHEM 153 during their freshman year.  The physics and mathematics supporting courses must also be started without delay.  Student should complete the required calculus and physics courses prior to their junior year in order to have prerequisites for upper division chemistry courses.  Completion of a computer programming course is recommended before taking CHEM 431.

Academic Policy:

Due to the cumulative nature of chemistry courses, the department strongly recommends that stduents receive a grade of at least 2.0 in all prerequisite chemistry courses.
