“He [Jesus Christ] is before all things, and in Him all things hold together." Colossians 1:16
In a larger sense, this verse captures the essence of the entire outlook of our chemistry department. Jesus Christ before all else, and all aspects of life unified in Christ. As chemists, we understand that His hand is “holding together” the very chemical bonds of molecules. Our goal as a department is to explore our mandate to be stewards of creation, and specifically, to recognize the hand of God in the intricate details of matter. The closer you look at what God has made, the more wonderful we find it to be.
College Chemistry Department exists to serve, educate and mentor students in the disciplines of chemistry and chemical engineering. We seek for our students to develop a solid competence in the fundamentals of chemistry as defined by the guidelines for an approved program of the American Chemical Society. We also desire to instill an enthusiasm for the process of discovery and research and an awareness of the tremendous responsibility and the sense of awe that comes with understanding and managing the material aspect of God’s creation.
A great majority of Geneva students – 70% – complete internships during the course of their study.
