Graduate and Undergraduate 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 offered by the Department, as well as their detailed descriptions, is available in the UCSB General Catalog. For actual course offerings by quarter, please consult the Schedule of Classes - Class Search or GOLD (for current students). The Department also maintains a Tentative Teaching Schedule, listing proposed or planned upcoming course offerings for the current academic year.
