Department Chair & Professor of Chemistry: Dr. Dan Hammond
By challenging our students through rigorous classes, from computational chemistry to bio-chemistry, we prepare our Chemistry majors for the next step toward graduate school, pre-health profession school, or any chemistry career. The breadth and flexibility of the Chemistry program allows all Chemistry and Biochemistry students o finely tune their degrees to best reach their goals.
Taylor offers numerous chemistry research opportunities that build resumes and count toward academic credit. Some grant programs, such as Taylor's Faculty Mentored Undergraduate Scholarship program, pay students to do research projects during the summer or academic year and gain hands-on experience with spectroscopic, spectrometric, electrochemical, chromatographic, and hybrid analytical instrumentations.
