Department of Chemical Sciences

CBU’s Department of Chemical Sciences offers majors in chemistry, forensic chemistry and biochemistry and molecular biology. We also offer minors in chemistry and forensic chemistry for students who have an interest in these disciplines and want to complement their major in another discipline with a foundation in a chemical science.

At CBU, you will learn from faculty members who are dedicated to their Christian faith and passionate about their disciplines. Our faculty in chemical sciences are not only focused on teaching the lectures and labs that our students take as part of their major but are also committed to our students through serving with them in the community, growing with them in clubs and professional organizations, working alongside them on research projects and mentoring them as they move through their majors at CBU and look forward to opportunities beyond graduation.  Our graduates have gone on to pursue graduate degrees at some of the most prestigious research institutions in the U.S. and employment in a variety of industries in California and beyond. 

If you are wanting to study one of the "central sciences" in a faith-based atmosphere, I hope you will consider all that CBU has to offer.
