Chemistry Department

Welcome to Galveston College’s Department of Chemistry. We offer majors and non-majors courses taught by faculty that possess extensive experience in both research and education. The faculty strives to make chemical concepts understandable and applicable to everyday ordinary experiences.

A distinct advantage of our program is a low student to teacher ratio that allows for personalized learning and advising on opportunities and choices in the sciences as a career and for jobs.

We prepare students to transfer to senior university programs as well as technical programs in area institutions because of matriculation agreements that make such transfers smooth and quick.

After graduation, many of our students continue their education in any number of four year degree programs, such as chemistry, medicine, dentistry, veterinary, pharmacy or other professional fields. Chemistry at GC is an exciting, engaging experience.


Galveston College has very generous financial aid support for all students who qualify on the basis of need. No student should be discouraged from applying to GC because of financial concerns. The Financial Aid Office is always eager to work with talented students to make sure they receive the financial support that will make a GC education possible for them. For more information, please visit the Financial Aid Office.
