Lssu Chemistry Department

The Chemistry Department at LSSU offers our undergraduate students hands-on laboratory opportunities.  Students can choose to specialize in ACS-accredited Chemistry, Biochemistry, Forensic Chemistry or Chemistry-Secondary Education. Our undergraduates examine how chemistry impacts every day life while preparing students for the job market, graduate school or professional programs.

LSSU’s chemistry program highlights include:

  • Small class sizes (upper level classes typically have 6-15 students)
  • Faculty and undergraduate research, supporting several research students each year and summer
  • Close faculty-student interactions
  • Modern instrumentation and facilities, rivaling larger institutions in the region
