Work collaboratively in St. Kate's modern laboratories and facilities that feature more than a half-million dollars' worth of instrumentation on our campus in St. Paul, MN.
A degree in chemistry will equip you with the knowledge and skills employers seek, including how to operate state-of-the-art laboratory equipment. This includes hands-on experience using nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy (NMR), high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC), X-ray crystallography, and mass spectrometry.
The lab courses will incorporate problem-based learning in which you’ll use different types of chemistry to solve problems of interest. You’ll benefit from repeated practice proposing new ways to investigate problems, completing experiments using modern equipment, and analyzing data utilizing a variety of approaches.
Student–faculty collaborative research projects give students the opportunity to develop peer relationships with faculty and present the results of their research at local, regional, and national meetings of the American Chemical Society, the Biophysical Society, and the Materials Research Society.
