The WSSU chemistry department delivers education through high-quality instruction and research. Every major works with a faculty advisor to select the courses that best fit his or her academic and career objectives.

Programs of Study

WSSU's American Chemical Society (ACS) student chapter promotes chemistry and science to the campus and local communities. Members have opportunities for professional growth, networking, & research, including participation in science fairs, science night activities, and after-school programs for local K-12 students. Through a variety of annual projects, including canned good collections for a local food bank and donating resources to benefit needy families, members serve the local community.

Student Research

The faculty of the Department of Chemistry believes strongly that research is a critical component of an undergraduate chemistry degree. We encourage our undergraduate students to begin research as early as the freshman year.
