Welcome to the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at JMU

The JMU Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry is committed to excellence in undergraduate education, to active student participation in research and to counseling students to help them reach their personal and professional goals. The department is large enough to offer modern laboratories, instrumentation and computer facilities, and the opportunity to take courses from faculty members with graduate training and research interests in all major areas of chemistry. At the same time, it is small enough for students to gain hands-on experience with research-grade equipment and to pursue an individualized program of study.

The department offers bachelors degree programs that are certified by the American Chemical Society in chemistry, biochemistry, materials science and chemical education in addition to biophysical chemistry and a chemistry/business degree.  

The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry is composed of 20 full-time teaching faculty, representing all of the major subdisciplines of chemistry.
