The Department of Chemistry and Physics combines the areas of chemistry and physics. At the graduate level, the department offers graduate courses in chemistry.

Chemistry and physics faculty are very active in research which includes graduate and undergraduate participation. Equipment includes spectrometers, access to the main-frame computer, personal computers, data-acquisition systems and wind turbines. The chemistry staff regularly receives research grants from such agencies as The Welch Foundation and University Research Enhancement Funds. The Alternative Energy Institute is known internationally for its research in wind energy and wind turbines. These research grants allow faculty to involve students in a very productive research environment.

Chemistry courses are offered in inorganic, organic, physical chemistry and biochemistry. Graduate students in chemistry are encouraged to become active research participants with the faculty.

Students are also involved in a variety of departmental activities, including seminars and colloquia. The small size of the program contributes to an atmosphere of informality and accessibility.

Each year, the department has a number of openings for teaching and research assistants.
