Research, teaching, and professional laboratory experiences—all of these are yours in the Chemistry and Biochemistry program at Lubbock Christian University.

Undergraduate research at Lubbock Christian University is a growing opportunity. How do we grow a better tasting peanut? Help us find out! Gain hands-on experience in wet chemistry. Put these skills to work in grad school, medical school, pharmacy school—the choice is yours. 

Teaching is learning. Become a laboratory assistant or do laboratory prep and put your classroom skills to work. Help your fellow man as a peer tutor through our Center for Student Success. Join our ChemDemo team and take the lab experience into area schools.

Does the prospect of working in a commercial lab excite you?   Gain great experience in a number of wet and instrumental analytical techniques and get both college credit and a paycheck. Join some of our former students who have earned positions with the Department of Public Safety, with other commercial labs, and with city and state agencies, or put those skills to work at a graduate level in environmental science, biochemistry, and chemistry.

Chemistry at LCU is not just a classroom experience, it's real world.

Majoring in Chemistry at LCU changed my life. I love learning about how the world works on a molecular level in a Christian environment. I am so excited to be back at LCU to teach this subject that I love!
