The Department of Chemistry provides students with quality Christian education that integrates faith with science, technology and learning. The Department prepares graduates to serve humanity as chemists, biochemists and health care professionals.
Ask an old chemist what he would like most, and his answer would be, ‘’a young chemist.” This statement describes the atmosphere of enthusiasm about chemistry and chemical research that permeates the department. Indeed, chemistry at Oakwood is an exciting confrontation of the student with the theories and the methods of modern chemistry and biochemistry. Oakwood has been listed as one of the 23 historically Black colleges that are most productive of Black scientific talent.
