You could use HTML and PHP to do this. You could use a dropdown to choose
the department and the values of the options could be the e-mail addresses.

ex in your HTML form:

<select name='departmentEmail' id='departmentEmail'>
<option value='-1' selected>- Choose a Department -
<option value='department1 at domain.com'>Math Department
<option value='department2 at domain.com'>English Department

then in your  php you would use the mail() function, sort of like what

$to = $departmentEmail;
$message = "Greetings\n blah blah";
$subject = "Welcome to the Department";
$headers = "From: The Department";

mail($to, $subject, $message, $headers);

If you need familiarity with the mail() function check the documentation at
www.php.net .
Or for basic php info and mail() examples you could check out

Hope that helps a little.
