About the Department
The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at Boise State University is certified by the American Chemical Society (ACS) and has an outstanding reputation throughout the region for producing some of the best-prepared students to enter the medical field, graduate programs, or the work force. The goal of the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry is to provide degree candidates with a thorough understanding of the fundamentals of chemistry, interwoven with training in up-to-date procedures and state-of-the-art instrumentation.
Students work in a congenial, high-energy environment with an outstanding faculty dedicated to improving the understanding of science. Going beyond the traditional classroom and laboratory, students work in real-world research laboratories with faculty to answer today’s pressing science questions.
As part of the ongoing expansion of Boise State University into a Metropolitan Research University of Distinction, the department is also moving forward through continual evaluation of curriculum and development of a graduate program. Our successes are attributed to devoted faculty and their talented research students.
