Houghton's Chemistry and Biochemistry Program

At Houghton College, experienced Christian faculty members (all active scholars with Ph.D. degrees) in the chemistry department prepare and equip students interested in biochemistry, molecular biology, organic chemistry, physical chemistry and analytical chemistry to define and answer significant questions about our world.

Students pursuing a degree in chemistry or biochemistry learn to think critically and apply their knowledge to real world problems. Faculty members have active research programs in the development of green chemical reactions and the synthesis and characterization of biopolymers.

Upper level class sizes of 5-12 students allow for hands-on training and use of instrumentation and specialized instruction tailored to the interests of the students.
