Subatomic particles and gigantic rock formations, the chemistry that makes up our bodies and the physics that lets us explore the farthest reaches of the solar system—in our department you learn about the big and the small, the near and the far.
Delve into current research in the fields of chemistry, physics and earth and planetary sciences. Although we are a small campus, our students have access to state-of-the-art technology, including robotic telescopes and a nuclear magnetic resonance spectrometer.
Who knew that silicone wristbands would turn out to be such a useful tool in studying environmental contaminants? Danielle Molenaar, a chemistry major, used the wristbands to gather data for a research project she developed with her faculty supervisor.
I truly think the fact that we are interdisciplinary is our biggest strength.
Hilary Corlett, assistant professor
