Chemistry and Biochemistry
Why study chemistry or biochemistry at Samford? Chemists and biochemists like to refer to our discipline as the "central science." This expresses our view that chemistry and biochemistry overlap with almost every other branch of science. The knowledge and skill that a student of chemistry or biochemistry develops can be applied to problems from the subatomic scale to those found in the farthest reaches of the universe.
The Chemistry and Biochemistry Department faculty are my second family. Every one of them has contributed to fostering a research atmosphere on the third floor of Propst Hall and continues to push me to develop essential skills as a scientist. Rebekah Brooks, U.S. Goldwater Scholar, 2014
The Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry at Samford University is small enough to provide personal attention and yet large enough to provide the breadth of experience needed to qualify our graduates for positions in industry, graduate school, or professional school.
