Program Overview/Mission

University of Houston-Clear Lake’s chemistry program offers opportunities for students seeking a bachelor’s or master’s degree in chemistry. The program achieved the prestigious status of American Chemical Society (ACS) accreditation in 2003, followed by re-accreditation in 2009. Whether you’re an undergraduate or graduate student, you are encouraged to take advantage of the various research opportunities that the chemistry program offers. 

The program’s research opportunities allow undergraduate students to become part of a research group and work with graduate students, post-doctoral and other research experts on cutting-edge projects of scientific significance. Participating undergraduates often receive scholarship supported by endowments from the Welch Foundation in the form of a Chemistry Departmental Research Grant, and become co-authors on papers in scientific journals. They may also earn an ACS certified Bachelor of Science degree in chemistry if they complete the appropriate curriculum, which can be advantageous in their future career development.

UHCL's chemistry degrees prepare students for careers in interdisciplinary areas such as medicine, secondary school teaching, patent law or environmental science.
