Our comprehensive curriculum encompasses five key areas of chemistry – organic chemistry, inorganic chemistry, physical chemistry, analytical chemistry, and biochemistry – as well as mathematics and physics.
ACS-approved programs offer a broad-based and rigorous chemistry education that gives chemistry students intellectual, experimental, and communication skills to become effective scientific professionals.
During your collaborative chemistry research with chemistry faculty, you have the opportunity to publish, and present your own original chemistry research at regional and national conferences.
Our chemistry graduates are accepted into the nation’s top medical, dental, and veterinary schools such as, Duke, University of Miami, University of Pennsylvania, and Auburn.
Our research labs grant you a hands-on experience using the latest state-of-the-art instrumentation.
Our chemistry students have conducted research at Brookhaven National Laboratory and Stanford’s Summer Research Program in the Biomedical Sciences.
In CHE 2231 Organic Chemistry, you’ll study structure, functional groups, chemical reactions, mechanisms, and more of carbon compound. In order to better explore the material, you’ll draw, visualize and describe molecular features, interactions of organic compounds and applications of kinetics and thermodynamics.
Hear from college leadership, faculty, and staff as you learn more about life and learning at Florida Southern College. Academic showcases spanning the breadth of the college's academic offerings will provide you with opportunities to learn more about the Chemistry program.
I challenge students to build their own connections between the very small (molecular and nanoscale principles) and the very large (macroscopic phenomena) through active hands-on and brains-on experiences that bridge the chemistry classroom and the chemistry laboratory. These connections extend from our chemistry coursework to the diverse topics and fields that fascinate our students, and it is these interconnections that will lead to breakthroughs, both big and small, that will continue to change and improve the world.
The Chemistry department sponsors a chapter of Student Affiliates of the American Chemical Society, which has received national recognition for their activities and outreach to the local community. We also host a chapter of Gamma Sigma Epsilon, the national honor society for chemistry.
