The Undergraduate Chemistry Program
The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry provides curricula for the Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Arts degree. By any measure one may apply, Chemistry and Biochemistry are one of the strongest academic programs at O.S.U. and in the state of Ohio. Ohio State leads the country in education and research because of our vast resources, cutting-edge facilities, and outstanding faculty. Consequently, we are consistently ranked as one of the best in the nation by the National Research Council and others. Our faculty members include members of the National Academy of Sciences, Ohio Eminent Scholars, Sloan Fellows, Dreyfus Teacher-Scholar awardees, and fellows of the American Physical Society, the American Ceramic Society, and the American Association for the Advancement of Science. Several faculty hold major national awards from the American Chemical Society and have distinguished themselves numerous times with research.
The State of Ohio and the University have awarded the Department funds as a Center of Excellence and for two Ohio Eminent Scholars. In addition, funds from national agencies and industries average about 9 million dollars annually. Ohio State ranks eighth in the nation, first in the Big Ten, and first in the entire Midwest in federal funding of chemistry projects.
