Chemistry is often called the central science because of how it intersects with other scientific disciplines. At DePaul, the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry offers students a rigorous program that prepares them to become critical thinkers with a firm foundation in analytical skills. We further provide our students with invaluable research experiences that help them get ready for the challenges they will face in the workplace upon graduating from our programs. Both teaching and research are supported by access to the latest instrumentation and modern laboratory facilities.
