Our Students Are Making an Impact

Chemistry was historically considered the central science, sitting between biology and physics. Molecular Science has now taken on a role that has significantly expanded the reach of traditional chemistry and biochemistry into a wide range of technical and social disciplines and contexts. Our goal in the School of Molecular Sciences is to engage as diverse a student population as possible in this new approach to science, technology and social responsibility.

Our students learn in a use-inspired environment how molecular science can address contemporary societally relevant problems. Degrees from the School of Molecular Sciences open the door to a wide variety of careers. Our recent graduates are making their mark in fields as diverse and the environment and sustainability, medicine and health, education and management, and technology and basic scientific research.

When you support our initiatives to foster student success, you’re helping us to shape and diversify the next generation of leaders, innovators and educators in the Molecular Sciences, and beyond.
