The Department of Chemistry is housed in the Swisher Science Building. Its modern laboratories are fully equipped. The Chemistry Department’s instrumentation is used to support courses as well as selected research projects. Computers and graphing calculators are used in the laboratories, interfacing with the high technology instruments for better data processing.
Right here on the Jacksonville University campus, students work alongside faculty and professional researchers in the Millar Wilson Chemical Research Lab, which has been conducting relevant, practical research for more than 40 years in Jacksonville. Students are strongly encouraged to contact individual faculty members and inquire about the possibility of conducting research in the faculty member’s area of specialization. See individual faculty members’ web pages for more information.
