About Chemistry

Students in the Walter H. Hoffman Department of Chemistry are expected to integrate practical and theoretical knowledge, as well as to reach a deeper understanding of how the practice of science impacts society. Throughout the curriculum students learn to work cooperatively in teams that are independent of gender, race, or creed, where they solve problems together and take this life skill into their future careers.
