Our mission is to give our students the best possible preparation in chemistry and physics, enabling them to transfer seamlessly to four-year institutions. Towards that end, we employ a highly dedicated and knowledgeable faculty supported by an excellent technical staff.  The departmental facilities are state of the art and include such instrumentation as FT-NMR and FT-IR spectrometers. Join us for what we think is the best Physical Science Department at the best Community College in the country!
