The chemical industry in the United States employs roughly 870,000 scientists in a variety of fields ranging from materials scientists designing the next generation solar cell to analytical chemists studying atmospheric phenomena to forensic crime scene specialists helping to identify and quantify trace evidence.
An American Chemical Society-accredited degree in chemistry from Loyola University prepares students to enter directly into industry or pursue an advanced degree in any field of chemistry. Indeed, recent graduates have been accepted into prestigious graduate programs at universities across the country including Stanford, Rice, Emory, Tulane, University of Southern California, University of North Carolina, and Yale University
Our ACS-accredited degree focuses on providing students with excellent classroom and laboratory instruction coupled with a dynamic undergraduate research program providing all students with the opportunity to engage in graduate-level research at an undergraduate pace.
