As you browse our web page, you will discover that our department provides a variety of exciting opportunities for students to engage in while progressing through the chemistry program. We offer a broad range of baccalaureate degrees in chemistry to prepare students for careers in teaching, medicine, forensics, research, and/or graduate studies in chemistry. The department also offers a master's degree through the Master of Science Natural Sciences program. Our classes are well structured and are conducted by a dynamic, world class, faculty who are dedicated to the success of each student. Moreover, our students work closely with the faculty on cutting-edge research projects in all areas of chemistry whereby they are able to obtain invaluable one-on-one training. Additionally, we encourage our students to present their research findings at state, regional, and national conferences to enhance and solidify their professional growth and development.
The Master of Science in the Natural Sciences with a Chemistry Track at Columbus State University is intended to provide students with a curriculum that consists of core and elective courses in chemistry.
Congratulations to Nicole Sikes for winning the Best Natural Science Paper at the 2016 Annual Georgia Collegiate Honors Council Meeting. Her presentation focused on recent research that was conducted in the lab of Dr. Wade Holley and was entitled "When Size Matters: Deviations of the Glass Transition Temperature of Polystyrene Nanoparticles".
