Bowling Green's proud tradition of excellence in chemistry begins with a dedicated faculty providing a wide range of courses, including sequences in biochemistry, analytical, organic, physical, inorganic chemistry, and opportunities in materials science. Courses are supported with excellent laboratory facilities and state of the art instrumentation. Chemistry has been central to the development of an interdisciplinary program in materials science and is an important part of BGSU's program in scientific computing.

Along with a B.S. in Chemistry, the Department also offers a M.S. degree in Chemistry and a Ph.D. in Photochemical Sciences. The Center for Photochemical Sciences and the Department of Chemistry have developed a uniquely focused Ph.D. program in the photochemical sciences, designed for students with backgrounds in physics, biological sciences or chemistry. The coursework prepares students in the area of photochemistry and photophysics, and examines applications in fundamental areas of chemistry, materials science, biological sciences, physics, and spectroscopy and/or photopolymer science.

Graduates of the Bowling Green chemistry program are sought after by graduate schools, medical and dental schools, by the chemical industry, and in many allied research entities around the United States. The University has had a long-standing commitment to public education in the State of Ohio, and many of the finest chemistry teachers in the State are counted among Bowling Green's nearly 100,000 living alumni. Graduate students and post-doctoral research associates come to the university from many states and a number of foreign countries to study in specific research programs directed by Bowling Green's chemistry professors.
