Chemistry is the discipline that connects all of the natural sciences. In chemistry courses at Carroll, students integrate an atomic/molecular view of matter with principles from math and physics to learn the properties and structure of matter, how matter interacts with itself, and how it is transformed in chemical reactions. Because chemistry is central to all of the natural sciences, courses at Carroll explore the interdisciplinary links that exist between chemistry, physics, earth science and biology. Carroll’s chemistry program also integrates all of the artificial divisions between the various branches of chemistry, connecting these disciplines in a unique and intentional way throughout the curriculum.
To meet the goals of chemistry students, the chemistry program is designed to provide them with knowledge and skills needed to enter graduate or professional school or to gain employment in a chemically-related field. Students completing the major program in chemistry are expected to have
