Welcome to Chemistry, Environmental & Life Sciences! We offer programmes and courses in Agriculture, Biology with Chemistry, Chemistry, Environmental Sciences, Geography and Small Island Sustainability (SIS). Our graduates receive an excellent education. They are able to compete internationally, matriculate to professional schools – medical, dental and pharmacy – or graduate schools or gain meaningful entry-level employment.

Our dedicated full-time and part-time faculty provide students with an appropriate balance of theoretical and practical learning experiences that have helped them become pacesetters in their chosen careers.  We take pride in our relatively small classes and open door policy.  We have produced some of the most distinguished healthcare professionals in The Bahamas and can boast of exceptional scientists contributing in our global landscape.  Our commitment to teaching excellence is a strength you will want to embrace.

Our programmes are designed to meet national needs and the ever-changing needs of our region and the world.  Our focus on sustainable development is reflected in the diversity of academic offerings.  Our new teaching and learning environment, through the G.T.R. Campbell Small Island Sustainability Research Complex, will provide an exciting space for you to explore opportunities for growth and development; these will be critical for your success.  Also, this Complex will allow for faculty development in an innovative space in which they can research and contribute towards national development.

The opportunities available in Chemistry, Environmental and Life Sciences are yours to explore and embrace in a local environment with global standards.  We look forward to welcoming you to a space in which you can be immersed in the best of teaching, learning and growing at University of The Bahamas.
