Chemistry touches almost every aspect of our lives, which makes it a fascinating field of study. The WSSU department of chemistry focuses on providing opportunities for you to develop academic and research skills to join the global workforce or to gain admission into graduate/professional schools.
Chemistry majors benefit from a small department environment in which the faculty are committed to providing a high-quality education.
The Bachelor of Science (BS) in Chemistry and BS in Chemistry (Biochemistry concentration) curricula are certified by the American Chemical Society (ACS). The certified degree entitles students to receive advanced standing in leading graduate school programs and additional professional opportunities.
Flexible non-ACS certified BS degrees in Chemistry and Chemistry with Pre-Health focus are for students interested in attending professional schools in medicine, dentistry or pharmacy.
The Chemistry Department offers minors in chemistry and physics and major programs of study leading to the Bachelor of Science degree in chemistry, the Bachelor of Science degree in chemistry with a pre-health professional concentration, an American Chemical Society (ACS) certified Bachelor of Science degree in chemistry, and an ACS certified Bachelor of Science degree in chemistry with a biochemistry concentration.
