Bachelor of Science in Chemistry

The chemical industry in the United States employs roughly 870,000 scientists in a variety of fields ranging from materials scientists designing the next generation solar cell to analytical chemists studying atmospheric phenomena to forensic crime scene specialists helping to identify and quantify trace evidence.

An ACS accredited degree in chemistry from Loyola University prepares students to enter directly into industry or pursue an advanced degree in any field of chemistry. Indeed, recent graduates have been accepted into prestigious graduate programs at universities across the country including Stanford, Rice, University of Southern California, and the University of North Carolina.

Our ACS accredited degree focuses on providing students with nationally competitive classroom and laboratory instruction coupled with a dynamic undergraduate research program providing all students the opportunity to engage first hand in graduate-level research at an undergraduate pace.
