The goal of the Radford University Department of Chemistry is to provide an excellent and rigorous undergraduate chemistry degree program. Over 90% of chemistry courses are taught by full-time faculty. The department offers Bachelor of Science chemistry degrees with the following concentrations: Advanced Professional Chemist, Professional Chemist, Advanced Biochemistry, Biochemistry: Life Sciences and Pre-Health, and Forensics. An American Chemical Society (ACS) accredited department, Radford gives a strong educational background to create successful scientific professionals.

The Department of Chemistry maintains an active research program. Students are encouraged to participate in undergraduate research. A low faculty-to-student ratio guarantees a close-knit, supportive educational experience.

Graduates attend graduate school, enroll in health profession programs such as medical, dental, and pharmacy and obtain jobs in industry. Learn more about the chemistry department »
