Department Chair & Professor: Markus M Hoffman, Ph.D.
Students in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry learn from a dedicated and experienced faculty. Our approach to education, which includes factors beyond chemical content such as personal faculty availability, independent research opportunities, etc., is in place to help students master chemistry by experiencing a broad spectrum of content exposure through examining the underpinnings of chemistry both in theory and in practical application. Our department facilities are centered on a wide array of instrumentation for chemical analysis and includes techniques not often found in a predominantly undergraduate institution (PUI). We incorporate both tried and true methodologies and in addition are expanding to bring more novel technologies to our research labs.
