The Moon, the Stars, the Sky...and the Art Gallery

The powerful impact of interdisciplinary liberal arts instruction was in fine form recently when students from Chemistry & Physics Assistant Professor Matthew Lippert's Astronomy class took time out to visit the College's Amelie A. Wallace Gallery. While there, they experienced works of physical and digital art and commentary from Visual Arts Assistant Professor Fred Fleisher that tied themes related to space, time and more to the coursework in this general education class.

American Chemical Society Certification

For those who wish to continue their education on the graduate level, an optional program based on recommendations of the American Chemical Society’s Committee on Professional Training has been designed as an integral extension of the B.S. in Chemistry. This optional curriculum has received full certification from the American Chemical Society. Students who complete the ACS approved program will be awarded an ACS certified B.S. degree in chemistry.
