Transferring to EKU Chemistry?

Chemistry Logo

With the clear career pathway offered by our chemistry programs some students choose to transfer from a community college. Many students elect to begin their college careers at the Kentucky Community and Technical Colleges System, KCTCS.  Below are five transfer guides for our most popular programs based on the upcoming fall, 2015 catalog at EKU and KCTCS.

EKU Student Wins at Regional Conference

2014 SURC Logo

EKU senior chemistry major Casey Howdieshell was awarded the Oak Ridge Association of Universities (ORAU) Best Presentation in Analytical Chemistry after presenting at the 46th Southeast Undergraduate Research Conference (SURC) held at the University of Tennessee. Each year, students from regional universities present their research and compete.

Special Course Offering

Chemistry 501/701E Logo

This spring Dr. Gao will be teaching her green chemistry special topics course. Our quality of life and very manner of living are dependent on chemical innovations. Yet chemistry is typically associated with creating environmental pollution problems rather than solving them.
