What is Chemistry?

Chemistry is referred to as the "central science" because it connects other sciences to one another. For example, Biology, Physics, the Earth Sciences, and Geology are all connected through Chemistry. The OSU Department of Chemistry offers several Chemistry degrees. Do you want to be a physician? Find a cure for cancer? Create new and better products people use everyday? Click below to look at the different degree plans offered by the College of Arts and Sciences. Chemistry isn't a boring old class in High School - it's a whole wide world of possibilities, and you could be a part of that!



A Loss In Our Family


The Chemistry Department mourns the loss of Dr. Allen Apblett. He served the department for over 25 years, cementing a legacy of scholarships and inspiring countless students. A distinguished fellow of the American Chemical Society, the National Academy of Inventors and the American Ceramic Society, Dr. Apblett was published over 100 times, holds multiple patents and awards and made lasting contributions to his field. The thoughts of the entire Cowboy family are with Dr. Apblett’s family at this time.
