Chemistry Major

School of Arts and Sciences

Referred to as the “central science,” Chemistry is key to understanding other fields of study including biology, geology, astronomy, physics, medicine, engineering, and materials science. The study of Chemistry endeavors to prepare you to formulate, investigate, analyze, and articulate solutions to major scientific, technological, environmental, and health problems in a chemical context.

In concert with the Great Commission, the study of Chemistry embraces the idea that its coursework should actively encourage and prepare you to develop theologically sound and scientifically solid connections between the Christian faith and the discipline. Because of our small, rigorous classes, students benefit from personal attention and assistance from their professors, as well as tremendous opportunities to engage in important research.

Concordia University Irvine’s Bachelor of Arts program of study in Chemistry allows you sufficient flexibility to accommodate a double major or minor degree and also may be of interest to students preparing for chemistry business careers or chemistry-related fields that are not directly research or laboratory positions. The defining characteristic of the bachelor of arts degree is the flexibility to pursue your desired career path and the value in the breadth of our coursework that may open up new ways of thinking.

The Chemistry major offers you the opportunity to select an emphasis in line with your interests, strengths, and vocational goals:
