The Loras Chemistry program is an American Chemical Society (ACS) certified program that provides students the opportunity to develop a strong foundation in chemical principles and to apply their training in the lab. This foundation enables Chemistry and Biochemistry graduates to pursue a very wide range of options after graduation.

The Chemistry program offers undeniable advantages over larger universities. A small school atmosphere coupled with the quality and depth of instruction usually found only at a larger institution, Loras classes emphasize lab work in direct coordination with professors rather than teaching assistants. Faculty are easily accessible to their students, and many work one-on-one with students on student-designed research projects.

Two local hospitals provide many opportunities for collaboration and extension of study beyond the classroom, and high-tech facilities on campus give students hands-on experience with cutting edge technology rarely seen at the undergraduate level. With the flexibility of student design and a wealth of opportunities, a degree in this division can be largely tailored to each student’s individual interests.
