Chemistry Undergraduate program

The curriculum leading to the Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree, a rigorous program certified by the American Chemical Society, consists of a full spectrum of chemistry courses as well as supporting courses in mathematics and physics, and is designed to prepare students for a professional career in chemistry.

The Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) degree with a major in chemistry is designed for the student who desires to obtain knowledge of the fundamental principles of chemistry and at the same time wishes to obtain substantial knowledge of a number of other fields of learning.

A Minor in Chemistry allows students outside the department to obtain a strong, distributed background in the discipline.

Degrees offered:

Chemistry Graduate program

A Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) in Chemistry at KU is intended to prepare graduate students for any of the multitude of career pathways available to individuals who hold a doctorate in the Chemical Sciences.

The Department of Chemistry offers the Master of Science (M.S.) degree for students who want a less extensive graduate program in chemistry. This degree program, usually completed in two years, omits the intensive course concentration required for the Ph.D. degree and requires a more modest research project and thesis.

Degrees offered:

Chemistry department receives more than $6 million in research grants annually
14 chemistry faculty members have NSF CAREER Awards
Longest-running chemistry Research Experience for Undergraduates in the nation
