Discovery and application of new scientific concepts and technologies are core goals for the School.

The essence of science, as we see it, is learning by doing.

Our students have access to powerful technology, including advanced optical analysis equipment, powerful graphics workstations for molecular modeling, and studio-style, computer-aided chemistry. A strong emphasis is placed on applying course work to real-life challenges with an eye on the needs of the high-tech world of the 21st century.

Undergraduate degree programs include many free electives, letting our students tailor a curriculum to individual interests and talents. This added flexibility affords the opportunity to begin accelerated programs, pursue dual degrees, or begin graduate work.
