The Department of Chemistry at Western Michigan University offers graduate-level environmental chemistry courses.
Department research takes collaboration from a wide range of fields and includes environmental chemistry with a focus on the integration of:
The mechanisms of action and systems through which chemical substances cycle in the environment have been the subject of research at WMU for nearly 20 years resulting in strategic national and international collaborations encouraging the development of research networks at more than 50 institutions world-wide. Students at all levels benefit from these extended research relationships building careers in atmospheric, biospheric, and hydrogeologic sciences as well as emerging areas of nanotechnology and chemical biology.
Faculty research efforts enrich the curriculum through existing courses and independent study opportunities.
