The chemistry department at Idaho State University is an ACS approved department consisting of eleven tenure track faculty, four non-tenure track teaching faculty, and five staff members. We provide a quality footing in chemistry for several different majors including students in engineering and in the health related professions. We also offer several options for students interested in a major in Chemistry: Bachelor of Arts in Chemistry Bachelor of Science in Chemistry (accredited by the American Chemical Society) Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry A combined Bachelor of Science/Master of Science Master of Science degree in Chemistry Masters of Natural Science degree in Chemistry Doctor of Philosophy in Engineering and Applied Science We work at providing our majors with the opportunity to enhance their education and practical experience by participating with a dynamic research group using state of the art equipment and instrumentation and also through participation in activities as a member of the Chemistry Club. Our research programs are diverse, including organic synthesis using organosilanes as chiral templates, studies of the composition and chemical behavior of plasmas, solar energy photophysics, environmental monitoring and chemometrics. Faculty are active in research and have authored several books.

Best wishes to all our amazing graduates!

Latest update for the University.

Don’t let social distance turn into isolation and fear. I call on each of you to be the force of love, support, and community that we need during this time. If we do that, we embody the heart of Idaho State University. I am here for you. But more than that, we are all here for each other. Let us not respond with panic and selfishness, but rather, rally around our interconnectedness and our duty to each other. Reach out to those around you.
