Since science and technology are driving forces in today’s world, persons proficient in these areas are poised for success. A major or minor in chemistry from Wilmington College provides you with the knowledge and, equally importantly, the practical skills required for embarking upon graduate studies and entering the workforce.
Required research not only increases your experience in particular subject areas but also helps you develop confidence and foster an ability to teach others. Our students regularly present their original research at national, regional, and local chemistry meetings, such as those sponsored by the American Chemical Society
Unlike at many other institutions, you will learn to work independently in open labs under the guidance of a faculty of Ph.Ds. As early as your freshman year, you will use modern, sophisticated instrumentation — like spectrometers and gas chromatographs. Indeed, many employers and graduate school faculty marvel at the impressive level of the hands-on experience with which WC students graduate.
Hi! My name is Alyssa Storer, and I’m a freshman majoring in Chemistry and Biology with a concentration in Health Sciences. During my first year on campus, I’ve gotten involved with the Honors Program, National Society of Leadership and Success, WC Pride, Ladies in Power, and STEM Society. When I visited campus during my junior year of high school, I immediately fell in love with the atmosphere and support that’s shown on campus. I can’t wait for what the next three years at Wilmington College will bring!
