Our chemistry program places the student in a community of active learners, working with faculty committed to excellent teaching, mentoring and scholarship. Students work with faculty members who are actively engaged in the natural sciences, and who are passionate about teaching.
Graduates leave with a strong chemistry background, mathematical skills, the ability to work independently, excellent oral and written communication skills, and problem-solving abilities.
In keeping with the Jesuit tradition of promoting the development of the whole person, the Science programs include the Core Curriculum of the College of Arts and Sciences. This Core provides a framework for acquiring a broad foundation of knowledge in the Humanities, Natural Sciences and Social Sciences. At the same time, the Core fosters intellectual inquiry, ethical decision making, and effective communication across the disciplines.
The SLU-Madrid Campus and the Department of Chemistry at Saint Louis University both offer an American Chemical Society certified undergraduate curriculum with B.S. and B.A. degrees in both Chemistry and Biochemistry.
