Nationally Recognized Program

Luther’s chemistry department is recognized nationally by the American Chemical Society for the rigor and coherence of the chemistry curriculum, the breadth and accomplishments of the chemistry faculty, and the quality of the chemistry facilities.

Luther is one of only ten higher education institutions in the state of Iowa to have a chemistry program approved by the American Chemical Society. This means that Luther students have the opportunity to earn a degree that is certified by the American Chemical Society. It is a credential that distinguishes them to employers, as well as to graduate and professional schools.
