About Us

We are a teaching- and research-oriented department offering degrees in Chemistry (BA, BS) and Forensic Chemistry (BS, MS), including bachelorís degree programs certified by the American Chemical Society. We also offer a Chemistry Secondary Education Program, a Dual Degree Medicinal Chemistry Program (with the University of Maryland School of Pharmacy), and an Environmental Chemistry Track in the Environmental Science and Studies Program. As a relatively small department, we are able to provide close interactions among students and faculty. Many of our undergraduates and all of our graduate students participate in state-of-the-art chemistry research, working with a faculty mentor. Our graduates go on to employment in academia, industry, and government; many of our Bachelorís degree graduates are admitted to high-ranked graduate chemistry programs, medical, or dental schools.

We are located on the fifth floor of Smith Hall near the center of the Towson campus. Please contact us if you have any questions.
