The Chemistry Department provides its students with a thorough education in the fundamental processes of the chemical world to foster creative and critical thinking. The curriculum introduces students to an understanding of chemical phenomena, structure, properties and transformations at the atomic and molecular levels. A collegial and supportive environment distinguishes the student-faculty interaction in many contexts, including the classroom and laboratory. It is this experience that prepares students for a variety of professional pursuits and enables them to learn beyond the confines of the college throughout their lifetime and to be constructive and contributing citizens of the community.

The Chemistry Department occupies the recently renovated and well-equipped Seaver Chemistry Laboratory. Students have the opportunity for hands-on experience with modern instrumentation and sophisticated software within the context of their coursework and independent research projects as early as their first year. In addition to extensive instrumentation and computational facilities, other resources for experimental and theoretical work include ready access to the primary chemical literature through online and print holdings in the Honnold Library.
