Welcome to Chemistry
The Chemistry Department at Moravian College provides students with
a fundamental understanding of chemical concepts and their application
to current problems. Beginning in the general chemistry course and
throughout the curriculum, our students explore chemical principles by
carrying out experiments using modern chemical instruments. All
students receive hands-on experience with analytical techniques such as
optical and infrared spectroscopy, gas chromotography, and NMR.
Many chemistry students choose to work with faculty members on research
projects in theoretical chemistry, physical chemistry, organic
chemistry, or biochemistry. The department's chemistry program
has been approved by the American Chemical Society; we offer
cousework and research experience leading to an ACS- certified BS in
The Moravian chemistry major provides a foundation for graduate study in chemistry, biochemistry or medicine, and for careers in the chemical and pharmaceutical industries. In conjunction with the teacher certification program of our Education Department, chemistry majors can qualify for secondary school teaching certificates in chemistry and general science.
