The Department of Chemistry offers three different programs of study leading to a bachelor of science degree. Although requirements differ, each track is comprised of rigorous course work in chemistry with supporting classes in mathematics, physics, and biology. Chemistry students also enroll in the Loyola Common Curriculum. Undergraduate research is an additional key component of each chemistry student's education. We encourage chemistry majors to join a research group early in their Loyola career. Check out our faculty research activities to discover more about research opportunities. Detailed information on each track, including required courses, can be found in the links below.
Chemistry majors are encouraged to read about each degree and to meet with their academic advisors regarding course selections, research, internships, and graduation requirements. Current chemistry majors can log in to their LORA accounts for their academic advisor's name and contact information. Prospective chemistry majors should contact the Department of Chemistry to meet with an advisor.
