Undergraduate Studies

The Department of Chemistry’s program is accredited by the American Chemical Society.

The Department of Chemistry is now classes in the state-of-the-art lecture hall and teaching labs in the Collaborative Life Sciences Building (CLSB), a brand new building in South Waterfront with lecture halls, research and teaching labs, and academic offices for Portland State University. The building is shared with Oregon Health and Sciences University and Oregon State University. More information about the CLSB is available here

Lectures offered in CLSB have a start time that is offset 15 minutes from the common PSU Time Grid to accommodate for travel time to the new building.  This will help students avoid scheduling back-to-back courses, which traditionally allows only 10 minutes of travel time.  Labs have an offset start time of 30 minutes on average. Overrides for time conflicts will not be considered. More information about CLSB travel options and schedules is available on the Academic Scheduling Office website.
