Mission statement

The mission of the Department of Chemistry, Physics, and Pre-Engineering is to provide science students with excellent preparation for their lives and ministries after graduation from Louisiana College, whether it is direct entry into the work force, graduate school in chemistry, or medical or other professional school. We accomplish this by providing rigorous coursework containing essential content on the chemical and phyiscal properties of matter, with instruction that emphasizes laboratory experience, problem solving and critical thinking.

Our mission also includes courses in Chemistry and Earth Science for non-science majors which inform students of the processes of science and the application of scientific thinking to a wide variety of issues, thus preparing them to be well-informed citizens and stewards of the created realm.


The curriculum in chemistry is designed to give maximum flexibility for several types of students. The person interested in pre-professional programs related to medicine, high school or college teaching, industrial employment or a general background in chemistry will find courses adapted for such interest.
