The former departments of Chemistry and Biological Sciences, along with the Forensic Science program from the former Department of Criminal Justice and Forensic Sciences, have all merged together to form the new Department of Chemical and Biological Sciences.  Our new department is comprised of nearly 50 full- and part-time faculty members and technical and administrative staff. 

The department offers several degree programs, including BA, BS, and MS programs in Biological Sciences and Chemistry, and a BSAS program in Forensic Science.  To learn more about these programs and various tracks available within them (e.g., pre-medicine), visit the links below:
