About Chemistry

Our small class sizes makes a tough subject easier.

We live in a chemical world. From the water we drink, to the air we breathe, to every aspect of the roads we travel and the homes we live in, we spend our lives in chemical environments. In fact, chemistry is often called the “Central Science” because it touches on every other field of scientific inquiry. So it makes sense that you can carry a knowledge of chemistry into a widely diverse range of career opportunities.

Of course, it follows that something as pervasive as chemistry would be a complex subject to learn. That’s why studying Chemistry at Butler makes even more sense. Our instructors take the time to work with each of our students individually. We make sure you understand the intricacies of atomic and molecular structures, chemical properties and reactions, and how to think, write, experiment and calculate just like a chemist.

Students learn from each other as well in our small classes encourage collaboration and make a challenging subject easier and more enjoyable to study. Our labs are equipped with technology that you will need to be current and capable to move forward with your education and your career.
