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.
The Department of Chemistry and Physics is scheduled to move into the new state-of-the-art, 120,000-square-foot Latimer Engineering and Science Building in fall 2022. The Latimer building was designed to give students a place to call home while attending UTM, with ample student study space, spacious classrooms, open- concept chemistry research space, and modern chemistry and physics labs.
