Why Choose FHSU's Department of Chemistry

Most colleges and universities offer undergraduate degrees in chemistry. So why choose FHSU? Here are a few reasons for you to consider:

  • Enjoy strong mentorship from highly trained PhD-level faculty members, which helps ensure that you acquire the technical and problem-solving skills you need to be in to high demand in both the job market and professional and graduate schools.
  • Dig deeply into advanced study in chemistry as an undergraduate student, such as conducting research with faculty. This does not mean simply washing beakers like it might at some universities - it means taking an active role in the process of scientific discovery.
  • Learn the proper use and operation of high-tech equipment and instrumentations throughout your entire degree program, an opportunity rarely available to undergraduate students even at larger universities.
