The Chemistry Department at Idaho State University is an ACS accredited department consisting of nine tenured faculty, one tenure track faculty, nine non-tenured teaching faculty, and four staff members. Our mission is to provide our students with the best possible education in chemical science through instruction in the classroom, teaching laboratory, and research laboratory. We provide a foundation in chemistry to students across health, science, and engineering programs in addition to offering several undergraduate and graduate degree options in chemistry:
- Bachelor of Arts in Chemistry
- Bachelor of Science in Chemistry (accredited by the American Chemical Society)
- Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry
- Combined Bachelor of Science/Master of Science in Chemistry
- Masters of Science degree in Chemistry
Our majors are encouraged to enrich their education with practical experience by participating in hands-on undergraduate research, and engaging with each other and the community as members of the department's Chemistry Club. Our research programs are diverse, including organic synthesis using organosilanes as chiral templates, studies of the composition and chemical behavior of plasmas, preparation of materials and devices for energy applications, environmental monitoring, and application of chemometrics to characterize complex mixtures. Our faculty is active in their research and have published their findings.
The department occupies most of 3 floors of the Physical Science Complex, a 20-year old building that doesn't look half its age and is well-equipped with modern instrumentation.
Additional Chemistry Information for COVID-19
- As per the University President (08/11/2021) face coverings are required indoors for all individuals––regardless of vaccination status. If you forgot one, feel free to ask your instructors or any University employee and they'd be happy to provide you with a disposable one. This on-campus face covering requirement for indoor spaces will be reviewed every two weeks and removed as the local situation improves.
- Please visit the University Tutoring's website here for more information.
- Students can contact their advisor's (or department chair) for advising sessions via email, phone, or zoom.
- Please reach out to your Professors with course-specific questions
- Please reach out to your advisor (see above) with degree or advising questions
- For any other questions, reach out to Department Chair, Dr. Joshua Pak (firstname.lastname@example.org)
We expect that the main office will be open during regular business hours (unless guidelines changes).
