About this course

The Chemistry Department is consistently top-ranked among its peers in terms of degree production (BA, BS, MS, & PhD) and research expenditures. Our 30 faculty members and 170 graduate students generate over 100 peer-reviewed publications per year and have earned numerous prestigious awards for research, teaching, and outreach. In addition to the major areas of chemistry (analytical, inorganic, organic, and physical), our polymer chemistry program has been ranked among the top 5, and we have highly developed programs in several interdisciplinary areas including drug discovery, computational and theoretical chemistry, surface science, renewable energy, and chemical biology.
