Welcome to the Louisiana Tech Chemistry program web page. Chemistry students and faculty use facilities in Carson-Taylor Hall and at the Institute for Micromanufacturing on the main campus.
Chemistry faculty members specialize in the following disciplines analytical chemistry (one), biochemistry (one), inorganic chemistry (three), organic chemistry (two), and physical chemistry (two).
The B.S. in Chemistry degree provides a number of career options, including attending medical or dental school, pursuing graduate study in chemistry, working in industrial and government laboratories, and teaching in secondary schools. An undergraduate chemistry major takes one of two tracks: an ACS-approved track or a Pre-Med/Pre-Dent alternative track. The two tracks are parallel until the student’s junior year. During the junior year, students in the ACS-track take additional upper division chemistry courses and get more research experience. Students in the Pre-Med/Pre-Dent track earn a B.S. in Chemistry by taking core chemistry courses that are supplemented with biological sciences, biochemistry, cell biology, genetics, and comparative anatomy. The biological science courses prepare Pre-Med/Pre-Dent chemistry majors for the MCAT and DAT exams.
Chemistry program faculty members work closely with students in the classroom and in teaching and research laboratories. A significant number of chemistry majors participate in research with faculty members. Some students start doing research as early as the sophomore year. If you want to know more about Chemistry program faculty, please check the web pages of our faculty members.
