General Information About East Central College
The mission of the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry has three main components: (1) the preparation of students majoring in chemistry, biochemistry and forensic science, (2) the provision of appropriate service courses to other academic programs, including athletic training, biology, biopsychology, natural science/education, mathematics, nursing, nutrition science, occupational therapy and physical therapy, (3) and support for the general education curriculum of the college. We strive to accomplish these goals while maintaining high academic standards, in an environment which is both challenging yet highly supportive, with close student-faculty interaction strongly encouraged.
