Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry

  • Joshua Allen of Susan Richardson Group


Open a door to the world of science.  A degree in chemistry or biochemistry gives you the tools to succeed wherever you want to go, from industry to medicine to government to academia.

The modern world is a technological marvel; progress depends on new ideas, new approaches and new understanding. All those things depend on high-quality research.

At heart, chemistry and biochemistry degrees are research degrees, and a major research institution like the University of South Carolina is a great place to earn them.  Our department will give you not only the academic and lab experience to succeed in interdisciplinary research here at the university, but also the tutelage, mentorship and connections for a lifelong career of your choosing.  All on one of the friendliest campuses in America.

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
