Undergraduate Programs

The Department of Chemistry adminsters five tracks of undergraduate majors covering modern chemical and biochemical studies. Students learn basic knowledge fundamental to the field of chemistry, and receive comprehensive training on employing the knowledge learned to analyse, at the molecular level, issues of practical applications or relevant societal needs, as well as to design, implement, and evaluate solutions. With rigorous coursework, hands-on training using state-of-art instrumentation, and a rich independent research experience, the program prepares our graduates for professional careers in a broad range of industries or to pursue advanced degrees (Ph.D., M.D., Pharm. D.) in STEM or health-related areas.
