Welcome to the Department of Chemistry!


Congratulations to Our Outstanding 2014 Graduates!

Chemistry: Amelia Watson

Biochemistry: Alec Follmer

Fred + Marguerite Early Award in Undergraduate Research: Angelique Cao


Our ACS-accredited department at the University of the Pacific (Northern California, east of the San Francisco Bay Area) has a long-standing tradition of student-centered education. In addition to classroom learning, students have many opportunities to gain hands-on experience in our laboratories. Our faculty care deeply about the students at Pacific and are available inside and outside the classroom.

We offer classes in the core-curriculum of majors in chemistry, biochemistry, pre-pharmacy, pre-dentistry, pre-medicine, biology, physics, physical therapy and engineering. Senior students (B.S.) compete very well nationally for admission to the best professional schools and are very competitive in the employment market after graduation. Our Graduate students (M.S./Ph.D.) have secured leading positions in industry and academia nationally and internationally.

We hope you will explore our web pages to learn more about the Chemistry Department. You can find out what students have to say about our program on the Our Students page. Please do not hesitate to contact the department directly for any remaining questions.

Yours sincerely,
Dr. Andreas Franz (co-Chair)
Dr. Mike McCallum (co-Chair)
