    Chemistry is often referred to as "The Central Science" because it is at the very core of many physical science, life science, and engineering disciplines. From the development of "nanotechnologies" which will one day allow humans to design and fabricate atomic-level machines, to "genetic engineering" which promises to shape the very future of life on this planet, there has never been a more exciting time to be exploring chemistry. With this in mind, the chemistry program here at RWU endeavors to provide students with both the knowledge and the tools to begin a life-long passion for unlocking the secrets of the molecular world.
