Department Chair: Sarah Pilkenton

The Department of Chemistry and Food Science is unique in that it offers strong majors in both Chemistry and Food Science. The programs complement each other, producing Food Science majors with an exceptionally strong background in chemistry and providing Chemistry majors with the opportunity to take electives in more applied areas such as food chemistry, food engineering, and food analysis. Undergraduate research opportunities are also enhanced by the combination of these program areas.
