As a chemistry student at CSB/SJU, one of our biggest priorities is helping you succeed. Our introductory courses include both a professor and a teaching assistant to ensure you get the foundational support you need. There are also plenty of free tutoring options for all foundation chemistry courses and labs, as well as one-on-one tutoring with student tutors.
When you study chemistry, you will complete research alongside our diverse faculty in areas such as nanomaterials, medicinal chemistry, environmental chemistry, synthetic organic or inorganic chemistry, and biochemistry. Our unique laboratory curriculum is set up to get hands-on instrument experience and learn several common lab skills starting in their first lab. This allows them to be extremely competitive applicants for paid summer research positions all over the country or world, including Costa Rica and Germany. The research you complete while at CSB/SJU will help you set you apart.
