EMU’s chemistry curriculum is designed to provide a solid foundation in the major areas of chemistry – organic, inorganic, analytical, physical and biological chemistry.
An additional aim is to provide the opportunity for research experience for the student majoring in chemistry. Students may compete for Kauffman-Miller Research Awards, up to for $2500 for summer research supervised by EMU faculty.
Thus, EMU chemistry provides a broad chemical background suitable for entry into a wide variety of career options- from industrial plastics chemist to pharmaceutical technician- and a solid preparation for study at the graduate level in chemistry, biochemistry, or related area.
