Academics & Advising
Our department is dedicated to developing students' scientific inquiry skills while focusing on purposeful research with far-reaching implications.
We offer a BA, BS and BSch in chemistry, or undergraduates can focus their degree in the areas of biochemistry or environmental chemistry.
Graduate students can pursue master's or PhD degrees in chemistry. We also have students working toward their PhD in molecular and cellular biophysics.
Weekly Seminar Series
Faculty, guest lecturers, and graduate students present weekly academic seminars on a variety of topics on Thursdays at 4:00 p.m. in Olin Hall 205.
An undergraduate degree from our department prepares students for a variety of careers and arms them with the critical thinking skills necessary to navigate life and solve relevant, real-world problems.
Graduate students are an essential part of our research community as both research and teaching assistants, aiding faculty and mentoring undergraduate student majors in the lab and in the classroom.
Science & Engineering Learning Center
Located in Anderson Academic Commons, the Science and Engineering Learning Center provides undergraduate students with common space to work on homework in groups. Graduate student teaching assistants work on a rotating schedule to answer course-specific questions.
Our Pre-Health Advising office works with undergraduate students all across campus to aid placement in professional school after graduation. Chemistry and biochemistry majors interested in pharmacology, biochemistry or any kind of medical practice can work with Pre-Health Advising to identify internships and valuable research opportunities that serve the greater Denver community.
