Welcome to the Department of Chemistry’s undergraduate program! Our undergraduate chemistry program offers students a world-class education in a small city setting. We have a tradition of innovation and excellence in undergraduate education. As a chemistry major, you will take courses with some of the finest instructors to be found at UNL.
Here are some resources that will help you along the way.
Undergraduate Research in Chemistry
Research in the lab of a chemistry faculty member enables you to become a firsthand participant in new chemistry discoveries. You will gain research experience, important for entry into industry, graduate school, or any research-related disciplines. These lab contacts may be useful for procuring recommendations for jobs and graduate and professional schools. You will receive course credits when you register for CHEM 399 or CHEM 463 for laboratory or computational work within a chemistry research group. Before you register for these courses, you should complete the Undergraduate Research Contract Form before they register for these courses. For more information, please contact the Chemistry Undergraduate Advisor.Get Involved
