Who We Are

We offer students three chemistry degrees: BA in Chemistry; BS in Chemistry; and a BS in Biochemistry. A minor in Chemistry is also available.

Our Mission

The curriculum is designed to serve students who desire a career in chemistry, biochemistry, or science education, or are interested in pursuing further study in medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, engineering, or the other sciences.

Learning Outcomes

Graduates with degrees in chemistry and biochemistry have many options. SPU alumni are working at places such as the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, Washington State Patrol Forensic Lab, Los Alamos National Laboratories, Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, Bristol-Meyer/Squibb, Seattle Biomedical Research Institute, Rapigene, May Clinic and a wide variety of public and private schools.

Many alumni have also entered medical school or other graduate programs at such places as the University of Washington, Johns Hopkins University and Georgetown University.
