The Science of the Future

The Department of Chemistry and Physics at UT Martin provides a strong foundation in chemical and natural knowledge, utilizing innovative learning techniques to demonstrate both theoretical and practical applications. Our program gives students the opportunity to gain laboratory experience through hands-on training in modern technological facilities. With small class sizes, students are able to build strong relationships with professors and receive one-on-one mentorship.


Chemistry offers a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry, accredited by the American Chemical Society (ACS) since 1976. ACS-approved programs offer a broad-based and rigorous chemistry education that gives students intellectual, experimental, and communication skills to become effective scientific professionals.
