Prospective Students

Meet Our Chemistry Majors & Alumni

Majoring in chemistry can take you where you want to go!

Chemistry is an available major to students in SAS, the School of Engineering, and the School of Pharmacy. The department makes an effort to schedule chemistry courses normally taken during the first three years on both Cook/Douglass and Busch/Livingston campuses. All courses required for the major are offered during the day and in the evening.


I like the critical thinking nature of chemistry. It is both conceptual in terms of learning and applying theories, and practical in terms of carrying out reactions and using instruments in labs.

    chemical bonds that are the basis of everyday life - from water to cell phones.

    the physical laws of nature at the molecular scale.

    cutting-edge laboratory techniques.
