UMKC Chemistry student


Welcome to the Chemistry Department at UMKC

The Department of Chemistry at The University of Missouri-Kansas City offers programs leading to the B.S., B.A., M.S. and Interdisciplinary Ph.D. degrees. We are located in two buildings, Flarsheim Hall and Spencer Hall. Our faculty strive to provide the best learning outcomes possible for graduate and undergraduate students in the classroom and our teaching laboratories.  Along with an emphasis in the classroom, our faculty members are dedicated to performing research in the traditional areas of chemistry such as inorganic, organic, analytical and physical chemistry. We have research strengths in interdisciplinary areas such as bioinorganic chemistry and biomaterials, nanoscience and material science and engineering.

If you are interested in learning more about our interdisciplinary research and chemistry program, please browse our pages. If you have any questions or would like more information, please contact us.
