Outstanding Chapter Award Received by the ACS

The Warriors Chemistry Club, an ACS student affiliate chapter, received an Outstanding Chapter Award for their work done during the 2018-2019 academic year. The club will be recognized in the November/December issue of inChemistry magazine and the ACS Student Chapter Award Ceremony at the 259th ACS National Meeting in Philadelphia, PA. Congratulations!


The Department of Chemistry offers programs of study for students seeking a Bachelor of Arts or a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry. Students may also elect to complete a concentration in Environmental Sciences or a Teaching Credential as part of their degree program. Students should consult with their department adviser to determine which degree and program are best suited to their career objectives.

The Chemistry Department is well equipped with modern instrumentation and facilities. Check out our inventory.
