A student in the science department at Bluffton will experience an intimate yet intense learning environment. The small size of the department and the university means that science students can and do pursue widely varying interests and activities including athletics and music.
Bluffton’s chemistry program closely follows the guidelines set by the American Chemical Society and includes a strong emphasis in the core areas of chemistry: analytical, inorganic, organic and physical chemistry.
Currently Green Chemistry is formally taught in the lab portion of organic chemistry, and aspects are discussed in other chemistry courses. We would like to make our labs greener and are actively working towards that goal. We are investigating the possibility of a toxicology course suitable for all science and allied health majors.
