Department Summary

The UO Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry offers
undergraduate major and minor degrees in chemistry and
biochemistry, and graduate degrees at the master's and PhD

Our undergraduate program provides training for students planning
careers in the chemical and biological sciences and for those in
biology, health-related disciplines, earth sciences, secondary
education, business, journalism, and law. Undergraduate research
and other educational activities outside the traditional classroom
are essential components of these majors.

Our graduate program recognizes the importance of diversity and
breadth in graduate education and continues to respond to the
shifts and changes in career opportunities available to our
graduates. Research at the University of Oregon is designed to keep
student researchers at the forefront of chemical science.

A unique strength of our program is its interdisciplinary approach
to research and teaching. Chemical scientists may be interested in
the Institute of Molecular Biology, the Institute of Theoretical
Science, the Materials Science Institute, the Oregon Center for
Optics, and the programs in cell biology and in molecular
synthesis, structure, and dynamics.
