Chemistry Department

In the Lab. Real Chemistry. From Day One.

As a chemistry degree student at Lewis University, you will engage in challenging curriculum led by industry-leading chemists, while working in state-of-the-art facilities with cutting-edge lab equipment.

At larger schools, graduate students have first priority to lab space. At Lewis, you are working shoulder-to-shoulder alongside faculty from the very beginning of your undergraduate career, learning about the various interactions of particles, and participating in high-impact research opportunities, which will put you in a much stronger position to succeed in both your future career and graduate school. You will be exposed to, and solve problems, that companies need to address in the real world.
