Department of Chemistry, Physics, and Atmospheric Sciences
College of Science, Engineering, and Technology
Chemistry is the study of how matter behaves at its most basic level. The central science, chemistry, is involved in everything that we do. Its applications stretch across all areas of life, including medicine, engineering and agriculture.

ABOUT THE PROGRAM
The chemistry program involves a deep study of matter and its properties.
In your classrooms and labs, you will synthesize, analyze and test substances to gain understanding of how and why they combine or separate to form other substances, as well as how they interact with energy. You will also have opportunities to work with faculty on real-world research and gain field experience for pay or academic credit.
LEARN BY DOING
From your first day on campus, you will learn to be a scientist by BEING a scientist and work your way up to developing and testing your own hypotheses. You will create new substances, test theories using chemical analysis, create processes to make unstable molecules more stable, and more. At Jackson State University, you will become a part of the process of creating new scientific knowledge.
“Challenging Minds, Changing Lives.”
APPLY YOUR KNOWLEDGE
Your time will be spent collecting and analyzing data or running experiments on state-of-the-art equipment – not solely sitting at desks.
