The Chemistry Department provides courses to serve a variety of students. The Chemistry major finds a curriculum designed to impart a broad competence in the traditional areas of Chemistry. Sufficient flexibility remains to allow secondary concentrations in a wide variety of other areas, such as biology, mathematics, or foreign language. The university's general requirements in Clare College guarantee a well-rounded, liberal arts education. Possible career goals include graduate school, medical school, dental school, law school, positions in the chemical industry, government, and teaching.

Science students, who are not Chemistry majors, but take Chemistry courses as part of their departmental requirements, develop an understanding of the fundamentals of Chemistry to aid in the understanding of their major field.

In all cases, the emphasis is on personal interaction between students and faculty.

Please note that Chemistry lectures and labs are separate courses.
