Chemistry & Biochemistry


Welcome

Texas State’s Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry is student-focused and committed to excellence in education and research. We serve the general Texas State student population through core freshman and sophomore chemistry courses and offer American Chemical Society certified degrees in Chemistry and Biochemistry. The curriculum provides fundamental and advanced knowledge in all areas of chemistry and biochemistry, extensive laboratory experience, and critical thinking skills. The diverse interests of our faculty offer a wide array of opportunities for graduate and undergraduate research. Our graduates have advanced to professional industrial positions or graduate/professional programs. More information on our degrees can be found here.
 
As a part of the University’s initiative to increase participation of underrepresented groups, faculty have instituted a number of programs to cultivate interest in science from an early age. Current programs include:
