Why Study Chemistry or Biochemistry at OCU?

An OCU student smiles in one of the University's chemistry labs.

  • Chemistry and Biochemistry are excellent curricula for preparing for careers in Medicine, Dentistry, Pharmacy and Veterinary Medicine.

  • OCU offers smaller classes sizes. Rarely will a class be larger than 24 students.

  • We have experienced, caring faculty who are focused on teaching and student success.

  • Our laboratory courses are taught by faculty members, not by graduate students.

  • There is a friendly atmosphere in which students help each other and close interaction between the Chemistry and Biology departments in the Biochemistry program.
