Navajo Technical University


The chemistry department at NTU is actively involved in teaching and research. We are the first Native American University teach Bachelor of Science (B.S) in chemistry. The chemistry department has a state-of-the-art facility with all the necessary equipment and instrument to run all the essential chemistry labs and research activities. Further, our goal is to secure the American Chemical Society (ACS) certified B.S. in Chemistry program in the future. The chemistry department is actively involved in teaching and conducting research, and the faculty secured enough research project funds to support the chemistry students in conducting undergraduate research. In addition, the chemistry department runs essential chemistry-related seminars, workshops, and community services. The Department also helps students interested in joining Pre-Med, Pre-Dental (Pre-DAT), and Pharmacy (PSAR). This program is well-designed to help students to join post-baccalaureate studies to pursue graduate programs at well-known universities. Also, the graduates of this program will have immediate job opportunities as chemists, forensic chemists, environmental chemists, nanotechnologists, chemistry teachers, lab supervisors, technicians, scientists, and health care professionals in the private and government sectors. If you are interested in pursuing your career in chemistry, please don’t hesitate to contact the department head for more information.

A B.S. in Chemistry requires 121 credit hours, and Chemistry is designed for a four-year program of study. Therefore, the minimum credit load for a full-time student is 12 credit hours per semester. In addition, a student must complete general courses and general education electives within the first two years of study with a grade point average of 2.0 or better.
