Study Chemistry

APU’s Bachelor of Science in Chemistry equips students to explore the chemical foundations of our world. The degree provides a solid foundation in general, organic, inorganic, analytical, and physical chemistry; quantitative and instrumental analysis; physics; and calculus. These then provide a framework for in-depth study of advanced chemistry concepts and related fields such as thermodynamics, kinetics, quantum mechanics, biochemistry, synthesis, and more.

Chemistry students have access to state-of-the-art equipment in the new Segerstrom Science Center, including a nuclear magnetic resonance lab. With this resource and many others, students develop expert problem-solving skills and the ability to work at the interface between chemistry, biology, and physics.
