Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry

Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry

Welcome to the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry

Our department seeks to provide students with an understanding of the chemical sciences that will enable them to continue study in graduate school, medical school, an allied health field, or immediately enter a profession in teaching or in the chemical or pharmaceutical industry. The unique advantage of studying chemistry at Messiah College is that while investigating the intricate world around them, students also study themselves and their Creator. The department places special emphasis on the integration of the knowledge and methods of the science with what Christian faith teaches us about people and their role in the universe.
