Courses

Courses in Chemistry and Biochemistry

Course offerings for undergraduate and graduate students span all of the established areas of chemistry (biochemistry, inorganic, materials, organic, and physical) while also reflecting the collaborative, interdisciplinary nature of ongoing faculty research projects.  A complete list of courses and their detailed descriptions, is available in the UCSB General Catalog. For quarterly course offerings, please consult the Schedule of Classes - Class Search or GOLD (for current students). 

Below is a listing of courses being offered during the 2021-2022 academic year. This proposed schedule is subject to change, so please check back when planning each quarter's schedule.
