Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry

  • The chemistry program at Capital University blends a long history of excellence with modern, innovative, student-centered teaching. Students get personal attention with a class size of about 30-40 students in a first-year chemistry course and easy access to professors outside of class. The Chemistry Department has adopted national programs that are known to improve student learning such as Peer-Led Team Learning (PLTL) and Process-Oriented Guided Inquiry Learning (POGIL). Research experiences in early courses prepare students for graduate and professional school or a science career. We believe that the level of student support in courses and opportunities for early research experience are among the best in Ohio.


    We offer a complete chemistry curriculum during the academic year, and accelerated courses through the Summer Institute in Science and Mathematics at Capital University. The department has well-equipped laboratories and modern instrumentation for instruction and research.
