The chemistry program here at Ozarks is dedicated to equip students with fundamental concepts of molecular science that are central to physical, chemical, and biological nature. The chemistry program offers students the concepts that prepare them to choose career paths in different fields including health, pharmacy, research and development, and academia.
Our goal is to provide conceptual knowledge in classroom followed by hands on experience in laboratory and undergraduate research projects, where students have opportunities to work directly with their professors.
