Chemistry and Biochemistry

Department Information

Located in the heart of the Rocky Mountains, Brigham Young University has had a long tradition of excellence from its beginning in 1875 as Brigham Young Academy. The university has grown to an enrollment of 30,000 full-time students, one of the largest private universities in the United States. Students come to BYU from all 50 states and more than 100 foreign countries.

The Chemistry and Biochemistry Department, with outstanding faculty, students, and support staff, is among the leading departments in research at BYU. It has had remarkable success in many areas including calorimetry, macrocycles, cancer therapy, and chromatography. One of the reasons for our research progress is highly qualified graduate students.

BYU is sponsored and supported by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and welcomes students of all faiths who agree to live by the Church's high standards of moral integrity and excellence in academic scholarship and who will abstain from tobacco, alcohol, and other harmful substances. Admission to the university is nondiscriminatory, and students are admitted on a competitive basis without regard to sex, race, creed, religion, or disability, if they meet academic requirements and agree to abide by the university's standards of conduct.
