Chemistry is the study of the structure, composition and properties of matter. It includes the changes that matter undergoes, the rate of changes and the energy involved in those changes. Chemistry has a direct bearing on every aspect of our modern society.

A degree in chemistry provides many career opportunities. These include employment in the chemical industry and graduate work in chemistry or health-related professions. Junior- and senior-level students are frequently able to fund a portion of their education and earn college credit through chemistry internships.

The Chemistry department includes both chemistry and physics and is located on the second and third floors of William Penn Hall. The instrumental lab has instrumentation for atomic absorption, gas chromatography, Fourier transformation infrared, UV-Visible spectrophotometry, and proton/carbon nuclear magnetic resonance spectrometry.
