At Concordia, we seek to develop both your conceptual and technical expertise, as well as the problem-solving and professional skills necessary to succeed in a science-based career.
Concordia's chemistry faculty are hired for their excellent teaching skills, their dedication to research and their fit within the department. High energy, a passion for what they do and a dose of healthy competition push these women and men to push each other. Our chemistry professors, including a recent recipient of a $500,000 National Science Foundation grant, hold specialties in organic and inorganic chemistry, biochemistry, pharmacology, physical chemistry, bioinorganic chemistry and analytical chemistry, and all are active researchers.
Have fun while you learn – join Chem Club, participate in the annual Science Academy that Concordia’s science departments sponsor for local elementary students, study in the college’s cutting-edge laser facility for spectroscopy research, sign up for an internship, research side-by-side with a Centennial Research Scholar or apply for a position in the Summer Research Program. It’s all possible with Concordia chemistry.
