Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry

Chemistry is the study of atoms, molecules, and the chemical reactions that they undergo. With close links to all other areas of science and technology, chemistry is a great major to consider, and an ACS-accredited degree in chemistry or biochemistry from Stetson offers the ideal preparation for careers in the physical and biological sciences, health professions, business, and even law.

Some highlights of the department:

  • ACS-accredited chemistry and biochemistry degrees
  • Five full-time PhD faculty members
  • Approximately 50 undergraduate majors
  • Small classes: typically 35 or less in freshman and sophomore level classes; 10-12 in junior and senior level classes
  • ALL students participate in hands-on undergraduate research with PhD faculty mentors
  • State-of-the-art instrumentation, including a 400 MHz JEOL NMR spectrometer (NSF-funded)
  • Undergraduate synthetic research facilities (NSF-funded)
  • Full computational chemistry capabilities (NSF-funded)

With research capabilities typically found at larger research universities, combined with the one-on-one interaction that Stetson is known for, your education in chemistry or biochemistry at Stetson will prepare you for success.
