Welcome to the Department of Chemistry at Harding University. If you are searching for a college in which to pursue your interests in chemistry, biochemistry, biochemistry & molecular biology, or the health professions (medicine, pharmacy, physical therapy, dentistry, etc.), then I hope you will seriously consider Harding University.

The faculty in the Department of Chemistry are talented professionals dedicated to providing excellent instruction. In addition to teaching their classes and laboratories, the faculty provide special help review sessions, conduct field trips, and provide individual help when help is needed. They also direct student research projects and help students become more proficient science communicators. The faculty are also committed Christians who sincerely want their students to grow spiritually as they excel academically. Several regularly teach Sunday Bible classes or have Wednesday evening Bible studies in their homes. All are dedicated to teaching science within a Christian context. We are very proud of our student’s accomplishments. Please take a minute to look at the “Students” tab.

The Williams-Miles History of Chemistry Collection at Harding University has been recognized by the American Chemical Society as a National Historic Landmark. For more information
