THE VISION FOR OUR DEPARTMENT IS TO BE A WORLD LEADER IN THE CHEMICAL AND BIOCHEMICAL SCIENCES THROUGH CUTTING-EDGE EDUCATION, RESEARCH, AND COMMUNITY IMPACT THAT IMPROVE OUR UNDERSTANDING OF THE WORLD AND OUR QUALITY OF LIFE.
CBC offers 10 undergraduate (BS, BA) and graduate degrees (MS, MA, PhD) in Chemistry and Biochemistry. Student activities include research experiences, outreach to schools to inspire K–12 students to pursue scientific studies, CBC Ambassadors, and several student lead clubs/organizations.
The award-winning faculty and students in CBC are dedicated to the study of the atomic and molecular world in all its aspects, from the structure of atoms and small molecules in space to large macromolecular assemblies in organisms.
