With a research pedigree dating to well before the 1944 establishment
of the Ph.D. program by Neil E. Gordon, and a teaching mission embracing
diversity and modern methodology, the department of Chemistry provides a
supportive yet competitive atmosphere for faculty and students alike.
We have over 150 graduate students and 30 postdoctoral fellow
researchers in the Department. In the last three years nearly 60
Ph.D.s and 150 Bachelor's degrees in Chemistry have been awarded.
