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. Indeed, many employers and graduate school faculty marvel at the impressive level of the hands-on experience with which WC students graduate.
