Welcome to the University of Rio Grande Chemistry Department homepage. Our department offers two degree options -  the Bachelor of Science in Chemistry and the Associate of Science in Chemistry. Both programs have been designed to provide students with a well-rounded background in Chemistry and to provide students with the tools necessary to pursue any number of post-graduation directions. In addition, we offer a minor in Chemistry to accompany a Bachelor's degree of a student's choosing.
