Overview

With an emphasis on undergraduate research, the department provides excellent opportunities to test the laws and theories of chemistry through hands-on experiments. In our department, you will build strong laboratory skills and develop an understanding of topics in organic chemistry, inorganic chemistry, analytical chemistry, physical chemistry, and biochemistry.

The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry prepares students for careers in a variety of fields. Many Chemistry majors continue to medical school or other graduate work following graduation from Gonzaga.

To teach high-school chemistry, couple the B.A. in Chemistry with the teacher certification program in Gonzaga’s School of Education. For a career in environmental science, a B.A. in Chemistry at Gonzaga University combined with courses in biology, civil engineering and law—is a great option. Or, if you’re interested in chemical engineering, consider a B.S. in Chemistry with additional courses from the School of Engineering.
