Welcome to the EMU Chemistry Department. We like to think of ourselves as having all of the opportunities associated with a large department combined with the individual attention available in a small department.

News & Announcements

  • Fall 2020 Course Offering Update – Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, EMU and the department of chemistry have been working on the best course of action for delivering Fall 2020 courses safely and effectively. At the moment, the department of chemistry has plans to conduct all lab courses on campus with appropriate physical distancing and personal protective equipment considerations in place. Many of our larger, lower-level lectures will very likely be given online, whereas some smaller upper-level classes may still be on campus or in a hybrid format. We encourage you to speak to your professors if you have any questions about the Fall 2020 semester. Posted July 6, 2020.
