Students working in chemistry lab

The Chemistry Program at Radford University takes a very hands-on approach, both inside and outside the classroom and laboratory. Within the classroom and laboratory setting, enrollments are kept small so that the faculty can interact on a personal level with students. Small class sizes are found even in lower-level classes with a maximum of 30 students per section in 100-level courses. The faculty are responsible for conducting both the lecture and laboratory portions of each course. Outside the normal classroom and laboratory setting, most of the faculty hold study and/or review sessions on a weekly basis.
