The core science.

When you study chemistry, you analyze issues that influence every aspect of life on Earth.

With a strong emphasis on laboratory experience, you will be taught how to design and carry out your own experiments and encouraged to work on independent research projects.

Career Opportunities

Our chemistry students are encouraged to pursue internships and REU programs during the course of their studies. Recent CLU students have interned at Ventura County Crime Lab, Amgen and Rockwell Science Center, and have attended REU programs at Colorado State and SUNY Stoneybrook.

These undergraduate research opportunities translate into success for Cal Lutheran’s chemistry graduates, who have been accepted into many of the nation’s most respected medical, dental, and graduate programs including University of California at San Diego, Irvine, and Santa Barbara, Yale University, Indiana University, and University of Ohio.
