The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry offers a rigorous training in the chemical and biochemical sciences not only to its majors, but many students in other scientific disciplines at DePaul. Many of our students go on to obtain advanced degrees in chemistry or biochemistry. Others pursue post-graduate professional programs in medical schools, dental schools and pharmacy programs to name a few. Our students have opportunities to work on research projects with faculty members, thus enhancing their undergraduate education.
Students may pursue a Bachelor of Arts in Chemistry, a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry, or Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry. The Department of Chemistry also offers a Chemistry minor for students majoring in different subject areas.
For students interested in pursuing a degree in Chemical Engineering, DePaul offers a joint-program in conjunction with the Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT), where students will earn a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry from DePaul and a Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering from IIT.
